Did not make summit, stopped at ridge before due to friend not completely comfortable in the terrain. Still stunning views of Baker, Glacier, Stuart and Rainer. Started by hiking up to Peggy's pond and stayed the night. I came across the last part to Peggy's pond when it was getting dark, which was not ideal. It is loose, narrow in spots and route finding can be a little difficult. Peggy's pond is beautiful. Not too much snow to traverse, but we did bring our skis and did get to enjoy it off the top. Long way to carry skis, but always worth it. Worst part was the mosquitoes, they were brutal. Overall great hike, but taxing with a heavy pack.

19.5 miles by our gps. Very beautiful and awesome hike but be warned This time of year in mid July the mosquitos and gnats were horrendous, swarms even followed us up the snowfields on mount Daniel, so be prepared because every bug repellent failed except putting on more clothing. If your an average hiker/climber this is comfortably a 3 day 2 night trek. We were pushed for time and did it in 2 days but paid for it in very sore bodies. (Or packs we 50lb with heavy climbing gear though). Once you get to cathedral rock be prepared for many many trail intersections that can lead you astray from where your goal route is.
