Basic Alpine Climb - Sahale Peak/Quien Sabe Glacier

One day carryover of Sahale

  • Road suitable for all vehicles
  • In general the route is in good shape.  There is one remaining snow bridge across the bergschrund which may be out in a week or 2.  Once it's gone, there may not be another safe way around the 'schrund. Getting up to date beta (Marblemount Ranger station?) would be advised.

Great one-day carryover of Sahale.  Started at 5:30am from Boston Basin TH.  Returned to cars at Cascade Pass TH at 8pm.  Long day largely due to traffic jam at the summit and waiting for others to summit and rappel off (which added an hour or 2).

As noted in the route conditions, there is one remaining snow bridge across the bergschrund that may no longer be available in another week or 2 of warm weather.  Updated beta would be advised. See pic (and note the big crack in the snow bridge!)
