October 28, 2017, Squaktobor Corn Harvest
« on: 10/30/17, 08:15 PM »

Went up to the Squak Glacier to see if the week of warm and sun had turned that new snow into proto corn and we were not disappointed! We were greeted with awesome, smooth fast corn from 8400-7000 and than some fun mush to a little below Crag View. The glacier was easily navigable and we didn't see anyone all day!

Most nice. I was tempted to head that way but could not find partners in crime. Did you summit, then?

No we ended up just taking the fall line corn rather than navigating around the crevasses up high. I think it was the call given how warm it was getting and our timing.

That was the unknown variable for me, whether the route is passable. Looks like you got the goods!

How was the road to Schriebers? The FS page shows it closed at MP 3.55 as of 10/25?
