Cross log bridge at Ingalls Creek. Go E on trail about 0.25 mi. to meadow. Can also camp here. Follow climbers trail up meadow and the Cascadian Couloir. Work up the couloir toward upper snow fields of the false summit. (Note: taking a good look at the route when at Longs Pass will help in route finding; also a good picture in Beckey.) Crampons may be needed here. From false summit (9,200') scramble E along left side of ridge through broken rock (class 2-3) directly to summit (9,470'). Be in very good physical condition as this is a long climb. Take care on slopes below false summit steep snow early in the year; loose rock later in the year.
