Description [Suggest Change]
Hike up the rock-covered Castner Glacier until the south, M'Ladies Branch veers off. A nice camp overlooks the West Ridge from at about 6000ft. Follow the obvious West Ridge for about 4000ft to the summit.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Rope up for the glacier. Some parties might want deadmen/snow pickets for pro, but not all groups use these.
