Fun little spring summit(s) with gimpilator! Longish day, some scrambling which I enjoyed, and lots of snow. First summit in three years according to the summit register. Beautiful 360 views once above tree line.
11 hours round-trip with Aaron (awilsondc).
Finally got to see cow heaven ! INCREDIBLE
Clouds limited views of the big peaks. More big blueberries along the trail than I have ever seen in my life - took no time at all to fill two water bottles.
With FP and PM. Had a great time snow-tent-camping (no wind!) and climbing the NE peak. My partners climbed the lower SW peak while I hung out about 30' below (due to a combination of steep sketchy terrain and a lack of interest on my behalf).
Fantastic views from the NE summit. Great weather and conditions.
nice hike, fairly strenuous with many switchbacks. Pleasant tarn up above on the ridge. Excellent views of Mt. Baker and Shuksan if you stay to the west of the first butte, however on top of the butte it is even better (and there is an easy fun scramble). Did it solo, 9:40 am to 3:45. Got to the ridge in 2 hours and took my time up top
