Summary

May 6, 2002 via South Side – West Crater Rim: Second ascent this season. Went up from Timberline lodge to top of Palmer at which point we climbed to the west side of the Crater Rock. Up some steep (well consolidated) snow to the top of the rim. The rim traverse to the true summit over a narrow ridge covered by a snow cornice was interesting. Descended via Hogsback. Windy all the way. The berg at Hogsback was open and about 1 foot wide. Good conditioning.
