Ascent Trip Report

Came in on the 20th over Longs Pass under constant rain and wind. Camped at the top of Cascadian where snow started. Fair weather broke at midnight. We cramponed to the false summit notch at 9k and variable snow and scrambling class 3 to summit. Glissading to camp was a blast and the coliour was a dirt pile. Long day. The longest of the year in fact. Might day trip it some day if I came back for Sherpa.
