Lake Ann trailhead at 7:00 a.m. Northwest Forest Pass required.

A challenging but rewarding climb with tricky routefinding and all kinds of terrain: steep snow, crevassed glaciers, and 4th-class scrambling. The Fisher Chimneys route is much more involved and strenuous than the Sulphide Glacier route. Climbers must be capable, fit, and comfortable with exposure. This would not be a good first climb.
