18 miles of hiking • 6750' elevation gain • 2 nights

Conditions very different from last year's attempt. Glaciers melted out and mazed with crevasses. Winnies Slide and the Hourglass features were ice walls, got to use my ice screws! We had to turn back after the first pitch on the summit block because a party ahead of us slowed us down and we were very worried about returning through the crevasses in the dark. Definitely the sketchiest glacer travel I have experienced. Luckily the weather was nice. Happy to be with trusted pals with level heads. Employed all the skills this weekend.
