Ascent Trip Report

3 days trip. Could have been done in 2 days. The second night, we camped only 2 hours from the trailhead.
Started on a Saturday morning at 9:30, we reached Glacier Meadows at around 4:30PM. We set up camp, ate and went to bed. It was 6:30PM at that time.
We woke up on Sunday at 2AM, and started hiking around 3AM. We reached the summit around 9:30AM. We went up through Crystal Pass since fourth of July route was blocked by a bergschrund. We climbed the summit block via the East face, using nuts as protections.
We came back at camp around noon, took a quick nap, and started going down again. At 7PM, we reached another camp and decided to camp there. The next day, we woke at 4AM, started at 5 and reached the car at 7AM.
