Ascent Trip Report

Couldn't find the log bridge so we forded the Nooksack River. Another party told us they did find a log bridge but the bushwhack afterwards to get back on trail wasn't worth it.
At 4600ft we gained the ridge of Point 5309 but it was slow going. A better option is to follow the 4600ft contour line (Between the moraine and the trees) until the line of fall from Point 5309 and then ascend to 5100ft of elevation.
Route finding on the Price Glacier was tricky with many large crevasses unseen from below when scoping the route.
We bypassed the final large shrund on climber's left in a 200ft long rock gully.
