Ascent Trip Report

Quick hike from the Microwave Towers Rd to the summit; we reached the chimney shortly before sunset, so we all hurried up to the top to make it, and did :) We bivvied on top and had a wonderful morning sunrise; descended past some folks who were surprised to see us leaving - they'd been camping at Garibaldi Lake
