Ascent Trip Report

Hiked the trail from Barlow Pass in thick cloud cover until just below Gothic Basin, where the weather improved drastically. Blue bird day from thereon. Followed the very well-worn trail from Foggy Lake up to the SE ridge of Gothic. Following the ridge proper involves a little bit of route-finding, so some parties may simply want to hike up the scree to the east of the ridge. Class III route with no real exposure was very evident from the base of the summit block. A very short climb to the beautiful summit. Great views of Mount Baker and Glacier Peak! Ran into at least 50 people over the course of the day... Gothic Basin is a very beautiful, popular destination!
