Comments: Descent: follow ridge down to lowest point, then go down the scree to the right of the slabs as shown in this picture (but will be skier's left looking down from the notch). This will take you down into the trees.

Comments: Boulder to jump from is located on the left side of the roof, once over the roof one can traverse right, then head up.

Comments: Yeah mostly good - but I only camped at the glacier once (first time in 1984), always after that I camped at Sam Mack Meadow and went up to the glacier on summit day, with a very light pack - it added about 45 minutes to the approach.

Comments: Good choice IMHO. I usually camp in the "meadow" and get an early start that very same way the next day, with a nice light pack for a summit attempt plus in early season glissade back to camp in the afternoon.

Comments: Last time I headed over Glen Pass (1996) I asked the Backcountry Ranger (Lo Lyness) at Charlotte Lake if there was a shortcut to Glen Pass and she said no - my old Starr's Guide said otherwise.
