Cross the moraine and drop onto the glacier. Rope up here. Follow the right side of the glacier to the steep snow finger below Flypaper Pass. Ascend this snow finger to the pass (6,500'). From Flypaper Pass drop 200' onto the Eel Glacier and traverse around a rock buttress. Then climb E on the upper Eel Glacier to a saddle just N of the summit. Follow snow and rock S. to the summit. This is a pleasant glacier trip with excellent views of the Olympic Range and Puget Sound area. It is best done is spring or early summer, before the snow finger leading to Flypaper Pass melts out. The Anderson Pass Shelter, located 0.5 mi. before Anderson Pass, is an alternate campsite. Please note that the Olympic Mountains Climbing Guide contains a misleading sketch of the approach via Anderson Pass.
