Ascent Trip Report

Trip with Chris R., Tom, Dan, Tim, and Anthony. Camped at White River CG on Thursday night. Did gear sort Friday morning and started hiking to Camp Schurman at 9am. Very high snow levels. Got to Schurman and had to dig our own tent platform for two 3-man tents -- a lot of snow to move. Got to bed at 9pm. Midnight wake-up call and we started up the mountain at 1:25am. Route (Emmons Glacier) was in very good shape with not many crevasses -- although there were some "yawners" we traversed around and above and a couple of deep step-overs and one jumper. Summited at 8:15am and then started down at 9am. Back at Camp Schurman about 12:30pm. Took an hour power-nap then broke camp and hiked out. Some fantastic glissading on the Inter Glacier. Great trip all the way around.
