Ascent Trip Report

Talk about young and dumb! No ropes, no shovel, and just two of us. All the crevasses were filled in as we traversed up the Blue Glacier. Saw huge avalanches in the morning as we started late after hiking about 20 miles in one day. Made it to Glacier pass and started up but it would have foolish to roll the dice any more than we already had! What a view with a clear day looking down on the Hoh Glacier from Glacier Pass.
