Ascent Trip ReportTwo day trip with Patty and the dogs. Left Tukwila around 4:30am on Saturday and headed for Winthrop. Arrived at TH around and started hiking around 9:30am after missing the road off Rt. 20 and getting a scenic tour of Winthrop (the Western version of Leavenworth). Hiked the Copper Glance trail up to the first tarn around 6200 ft. then turned right to head up to the lake at 6600 ft. that isn't on the USGS map. Ditched all the heavy stuff and set up camp at the very beautiful site and headed for the saddle between Big Craggy and West Craggy. Should be called Big Crappy. Gained the saddle and headed right for the summit, which we made around 4:30. According to the register we were the 10th party in 2011. Returned to camp, headed up West Craggy the following morning.
