This itinerary is tentative and may change. We'll start from the Cascade Pass trailhead and climb Sahale Peak, descend to the Boston-Sahale col, drop down onto the Boston glacier, and traverse over to the base of Buckner, where we will camp. In the morning we’ll climb the North Face of Buckner and then descend the southwest route back to the Sahale arm. These will be two long, strenuous days with a carry-over so plan to travel light.
