The general plan is to cover the cross-country hike from the White Salmon Lodge to a camp site somewhere below the White Salmon glacier on Saturday. Then on Sunday we'll climb the North Face, traverse around to the south to climb the summit pyramid, and then descend via the Sulphide, Upper Curtis, and White Salmon glaciers.
