Glacier Travel

Glacier Travel

Learn the skills to explore Washington's volcanoes and climb high into the North Cascades glaciated terrain.

The course is designed for those with some previous climbing/scrambling experience who want to learn the basics of safe glacier travel on snow-covered routes. You'll learn about ice axe use, roped glacier travel, crevasse rescue techniques, and gear selection that is appropriate for spring/summer glaciated peak climbs in the Pacific NW.

This course does NOT cover glacier ice climbing techniques.

Upon completion of the course, you will be qualified to go on those glacier climbs where no rock or ice climbing skills are needed to reach the summit.   Available climbs include Mt Rainier, Mt Baker, Ruth Mountain and Icy Peak, and Glacier Peak.


In March by our Seattle branch with registration opening in November.
