Ascent Trip ReportAnother trip with my owners Sean and Patty. We took the Silver Star creek approach, left the car at 5:15am, made the summit around 11:30. Saw a few other parties coming through the col, seems to be a much more popular way these days. They were roped up but the glacier was very mellow so I could luckily run free on the snow. Some new snow and rime ice up high, I made it all the way to the summit with a couple butt scooches! Back to the car at 3:15pm, lots of waiting for my owners who are much slower than me... Unfortunately didn't hear or see one marmot.
