On August 30, 2020, Dan and I climbed Mt. Challenger in a day from the Hannegan Pass trailhead. It was the 3rd in a string of weekend missions, topping both the Ptarmigan Traverse in a day and Glacier Peak in a day. 

And what a day it was! This route has it all: lots of trail miles, Easy Ridge (it really doesn't get much better), copious blueberry patches, 4 miles of glacier travel, a pitch of climbing, and seldom seen views into the Chilliwack Range and the Southern Pickets. What a treat.
