Ascent Trip ReportStarted our climb from Ingraham Flats, but didn’t hit the trail until 1:30 in the morning. We made it to the crater rim shortly after 6:30. And after taking care of some of nature’s calls, reached the true summit at about 7:00. On the return, the unseasonably high temperatures had turned much of the bootpack to slush which made for a treacherous down climb, but we managed and reached our camp site before noon. We took some time to melt some snow and tear down camp and reached our car shortly after 5:00pm.
