Ascent Trip Report

Left camp at 7:09 and returned just about 6:15 or 6:20.

It took about 5:15 to summit. We enjoyed the dayin and out - now rush. 1:15 on the summit. The burnout devastation is pretty sobering through the valley (Snow Brushy Creek). The trail down from Saska Pass peters out at around 6500' and we just picked a way down. There was a bit of trail along Snow Brushy Creek but hard to follow so we just went up crosscountry pretty much all the way to Borealis Pass (we saw a few cairns in the upper meadow). We took the drainage up between the cliff bands. The terrain on climber's left is better (the way we came out)
