Ascent Trip Report

Had a great hike with the Obsidains club from Eugene, Oregon, We took the Pioneer Gluch Trail. We followed the trail for about a mile before the trail was covered in snow. We used ice axes but did not use the crampons or snowshoes that we all brought. The weather got quite windy over 8,000 but was not enough to prevent us from making the summit. We had several excellent glissades.
