Easy goings. Traversed left at 6500, and found no difficulties, or snow. Found a couple friendly ptarmigans.

Date Climbed: Jun 11, 2014
Via traverse from Monte Cristo Peak. South Ridge involved a circuitous route, with some interesting class 4 scrambling and loose rock. Descended the standard route.

It was slight gamble to try Cadet this late in the year. We made it to 6400 feet before bad snow conditions turned us around near the crux.

Don't forget the bike, as it will save you a couple hours in your day. Great peak, had the summit to myself, enjoyed a nice read and a cup of joe. Didn't see anyone all day except right near the start of Glacier Basin trail.

Great climb with beautiful weather. Did not see anyone until Glacier Falls on the way back out, which seemed really strange on the Friday before Labor Day. To answer leftfield's question, yes, it is possible to scramble Cadet with no thrashing. Just follow the route as described in Jeff Smoot's book, which follows two gullys just to the right of the route described here. Once you get to the top of the gullys, you will find the flagged climber's path.

IS there a way to negotiate the first 400 feet without thrashing? After we got that over with we found the clearly marked trail and waltzed to the top on good snow and heather benches. On the way down the flagging/trail ran out and we plunged back into thrashing until we saw the scree slope leading to the basin (not the way we came up). Beautiful area.

Plan for a long day! We made it to around 6,000' before we had to turn around due to time, snow conditions and signs of avalanche danger. Glacier Basin is beautiful and the views from were we got on Cadet were great. Postholed for hours in thigh high snow, first couple gullies are extremely steep, too steep for snowshoes. Very annoying snow conditions around mystery hill. Signs of ice caves forming with the melting snow off of rocks. Be careful, lots of hollow sections and snow bridges over the creek. We will be back this summer to finish what we started.
