Ascent Trip ReportMade it up the west ridge during some great weather. I dunno if I took all the "correct" scree fields on the south side of the ridge, but I ended up having to ascend/descend a pretty nasty chute of rotten rock. Was no easy go around. I know I hit the final scree scramble to the summit perfectly, although not sure if I messed something up earlier in the routefinding. Summit was awesome. Great views of Eagle and Calliope. Didn't see anyone until I got back ontop of point 3600, and from there, the trail was crazy busy all the way back to parking.
