This is a great first basic glacier climb. I am reserving the spots for Everett students needing experience climbs for graduation. Please request permission to get on this climb. When requesting permission tell me about your experience this season so far in terms of scrambles and conditioners that you've done. Also tell me what you know about the route, etc.
