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.
