Ascent Trip Report

The Glacier was in pretty good shape for it being August. There were a few large ones but all were easily passable with Snow bridges and some light traversing.
I managed to leave Camp at midnight and was able to spend quite awhile on the summit alone watching the sunset.

Having to hike all the way back out in one day was extremely exhausting. I would plan at least 3 days if you want a good comfortable experience
All in all it was an incredible experience. I finally climbed all of Washington's volcanoes!
