Ascent Trip Report

From Glacier Gap, via the Suiattle Glacier (ascended Kololo the day before climbing Glacier Peak (again!) with my 17 year old niece Asta Tautvydaite Wiley, and with David Salinger). All crevasses on way up to the Kololo ridge were closed up; signs of sagging snow bridges. Easy glacier walk from Glacier Gap to summit rock ridge. True summit is not the westernmost pinnacle as indicated on The summit is to the east of the current marked point on the map (note: may be corrected?). From this point we scrambled down broken rock and over to the true summit, which was just minutes away. This summit was visibly higher; and we found the summit register there. We returned to camp at Glacier Gap and climbed Glacier Peak the following day.
