Ascent Trip Report

Eleven hour C2C on this prominent Olympic Peak.

Smooth sailing past Lena Lake and into the Valley of the Silent Men. A section of blowdowns about midway through the Valley slows one down a bit but just keep an eye open for tape. Trail is easy to follow until the burn section where it can be a bit difficult at times but just keep going up.

Soft, undercut snow after the burn section followed by some rock and then the steep gully. Snow was in fantastic kick stepping condition to just short of the summit, where a short scramble leads to the top.
