Ascent Trip Report

Four day RT climb via the Glacier Trail with Dale Carley. Long, but beautiful hike to this tough mountain. Had fun rock climbing and with glacier travel. Turned around near Gooseneck Pinnacle when Dale injured his leg badly. Most of the people I met were with guides and had horses to carry their gear. Abundance of wildflowers, the spectacular Dinwoody Creek, and moose, mule deer, and other wildlife.
