Ascent Trip Report

I turned back just shy of the summit wishing I'd brought a short piece of rope to rap the top 10'. It didn't look terrible to get up but the presence of rap slings unnerved me enough to come back another day to tag the top. The glacier was no big deal. The approach from Hwy 20 is stout but very doable in a day round trip. Burgundy Col is a great place to spend a night too.
