This is a 3 day combination of Kololo and Glacier peak crossing 3 to 4 separate glaciers on summit day.  Due to the mileage and gain, this is a physical beast of a climb and excellent conditioning is required.

This is also a Mentored Glacier climb for Tim Bliss.  Contact Tim to register or for more information at tdbliss798@hotmail.com.
