TBD. We need to get a permit in Marblemount before starting from the Thunder Creek Trailhead off of SR-20.

This is a three-day trip. We will pick the best three days.

This route is not technically difficult, with a moderate glacier and some exposed 3rd and 4th class scrambling, but it is long and strenuous. Day one is a 19 mile approach and day three reverses that.

Climbers need to be fit and able to keep up a good pace. They should also have their glacier travel/rescue skills in hand and be comfortable with unroped scrambling on exposed rock. If this sounds like a good time, request permission with information on your relevant background.
