Ascent Trip Report

Stoked that brad and lance were down to join. Had to park at gate 2mi before the trailhead despite the road is in good shape and is snow free to TH. I hope they open it soon.

Took route via Sahale glacier camp and snow finger downclimb. Thx Kyle J for last minute beta when we met this morning at cascade pass

Horseshoe is the least worthy of Big Boy status of any Bulger peak. But fun was still had. I wanted to climb it first for a “more aesthetic day experience”. And we ran into Sean near the summit!! He was moving fast and having a good day.

Nice to finally get up Buckner. Just 1 more 9ker ;)

A significant wind event hit us descending from Sahale glacier camp. Had to brace ourselves to stay on feet at times.

Fun times drinking beers at cars despite long day

The saddest part of today was that I used red anorak 2.0. Red anorak 1.0 was thrown away after returning from stehekin triangle. I hope anorak 2.0 lasts forever
