Ascent Trip ReportAfter a biffed attempt of the Chelan Slam, due to thousands and thousands of blowdowns along the trail (I bailed 3 miles in, realizing it was hopeless, and should have listened to the trail register warnings from previous climbers), I decided to drive to Winthrop, have dinner, and bivy at the Copper Glance TH. Fortunately, the debris along the road had been cleared, saving about 2.8 m in added distance from when I was here earlier in the year.
Lot of mosquitos up to the tarn. I did not ascend the magic ramp, but instead kept climbers right and went up some fun(ish) class 4 stuff, then reconnected with a climbers path the make the summit. On the descent I glissaded down to meet the magic ramp and took this, then plunge ran past the tarn which was a hyper ice blue with the melt in late afternoon.
