Description

This was a quick evening training hike.  I had done Mount Morrison several times and was just looking for something different and a new mountain to add to my peak list.  I had initially intended to make two laps on Mount Glennon because of the reasonable statistics; however, I only hiked it once due to the snow, wet rocks, and bush-whacking that weren't very pleasant.  I think it took me about an hour round trip.  I went up the north ridge, but basically angled northeast from the summit on the descent and simply traversed the east slopes back down to my vehicle.
