Another great TR and pictures Eric. The sunrise pictures as sweet, as is the classic
view of the lakes below from the trail above Sam Mack Meadow. :)

A good route. Sad to see the glacier and couloir evaporating. They were fun features of the route 20 years ago. All gone

Hi Schpier,

Welcome to HST! Hope you will take the time to post, about some of your adventures, no matter how long ago they may have been. :)
