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.
