Ascent Trip ReportI did this one in combination with Big Craggy. The traverse over from big was complicated due to the snow conditions on the peak. Nothing was horribly difficult, but, being waist-deep in snow and kicking steps for hours on end does take its toll. The best part was the final ~150 ft or so to the summit where there is a 45-degree snow slope or so to climb. It was not necessary but added to the adventure for those willing to take it on. Not the best peaks I have climbed in the North Cascades, but a worthy set nonetheless.
