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.

Comments: Anchor using the three glue-in bolts, they're close to the edge, you can set up a three medium cam anchor in a crack at the back, secure a static line, tie in to it and then walk with confidence to the edge to set up the anchor. This can also be used to back up (!) the bolt anchor, plus it you rig it correctly you can use it to hold on to until you're over the edge for the rappel.

Comments: Ahh - see that little bush? Once in November 1995, on the descent I leaned over this block to scope out the descent and wham! A diamondback bit me on the wrist.
