This 4 day Glacier Peak summit climb travels up the Gerdine and Cool Glacier Routes up the south and east side of the mountain. As one of Washingtons 5 volcanoes and the most remote Glacier Peaks serves up a unique wilderness experience. Participants will gain experience with ice axe and crampons, roped glacier travel, self arrest, and when time permits crevasse rescue.

 

Ascend the classic Chocolate Glacier route on the iconic volcano Dakobed (Glacier Peak). Over 4 days we will follow the North Fork of the Sauk River up to the Pacific Crest Trail at White Pass, and to our base camp amongst the moraine near the waining White Chuck Glacier. Traveling is moderately strenuous and beautiful with good views stretching out along the Cascade Crest and over the North Cascade Mountains, and out to the Puget Sound. Enjoy alpine sunrises and sunsets at the toe of the glacier. Join us this summer for a great climb!
