Ascent Trip Report

I 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.
