Ascent Trip Report

A warm weekend in the Sierras, temps were in the high 50s to high 70s. Approach was to Ediza Lake via Shadow Lake from Agnew Meadow. On summit day, we used the Southeast Glacier with the Clyde Variation, and we were on snow most of the way after crossing the streams west of Ediza Lake. We encountered a passing thunderstorm that spit a little rain, but after that no weather threatened our ascent. A great day.
