Basic Glacier Climb - Glacier Peak/Disappointment Peak Cleaver

Priority for Kitsap students until Aug 19 - - - - - - - - - - From the Web: Glacier Peak is perhaps the most unique of the “Classic Summits,” the Cascade Range's lone wilderness volcano with a landscape remaining in pristine condition. The fourteen-mile approach takes us through one of the region’s most pristine and incredible wilderness areas; past old-growth forest and through alpine meadows. The climbing is diverse and interesting but moderate at 10,520-ft.
