Trip Report    

Mount Stuart/North Ridge

successful summit. ingalls lake still snow covered but water available there.

Bivvied Fri afternoon at 8,200' notch, melting water with available snow. Used nearly 2 canisters for 3 people. Recommend carrying 3 liters from this point onward.

Simul-climbed ridge and climbed Great Gendarme, dragging up packs with a Micro Traxion on 2 pitches. Snow available at top, but descended Cascadian to conserve time. Arrived at Ingalls Creek in evening, re-hydrating and exiting via Longs Pass.

Great trip. Committing - the bailoff point for easier 5th class climbing below Great Gendarme is not recommended - wet and poor rock quality.
