~7,500 ft up the West Ridge

Description 

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 

Rope up for the glacier. Some parties might want deadmen/snow pickets for pro, but not all groups use these.
