Ascent Trip Report

Attempted Mount Saint Helens as a party of 3 via the standard winter Worm flows route. All the warm fronts from last week made for excellent cramponing conditions. Started at 4:30 AM, summited by 10 AM and back down by 2 PM. We carried snowshoes but did not feel a need to use it.

Note that above 7000 ft, going across Swift glacier to the crater rim was preferred by most folks instead of standard route towards Monitor ridge.
