The road is still snowed in at about 3400 feet, so we started there.
Last bit before the summit.
Goldbar to the west.
We managed to not find the trail and ended up bushwhacking up a few hundred vert of very thik brush. It sucked.

This is what I felt about the bushwhacking.
Putting on crampons at 3400 feet.
Looking down on the town of Index, with the upper town wall above it.
