Ascent Trip Report4000ft of butt tingling can't tell if I have a wedgie or not it's so caold down there glissading.
Beautiful day. The clouds tried to chase us up, but we beat them by a couple thousand feet. Descended through the clouds and hike out. 5 hours up, 3 down.
Make sure to not miss the creek crossing as soon as you hit the lava flow at the mountain base. It's not easy to see pre-dawn.
