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. Jan 13, 2016
hopefully good memories... six hours after this photo I was having one of my worst-ever nights outside at our bivy below the glacier. My pack wasn't feeling too heavy as we crawled up out of the Meadow, but man, I paid for it later! May 15, 2012
