Ascent Trip Report

Really fun hike. note of caution. unless you want to caught in sketchy situations in loose rock and icy snow ascend and descend on the west ridges toward crater crest (where we found a bit of a trail). We have had two gnarly experiences coming down the east side chutes. If you bring a jeep up summers meadows road you can cut an unnecessary 800 ft climb from where a normal car has to stop.
