12h car-to-car from North Sauk trailhead via the standard Gerdine/Cool route. Glacier gear and even crampons are overkill for this long but scenic route. Trip report.

What a gorgeous trek..I stayed at glacier gap and made a slushy summit trek in morning. Go early! Spent two hours napping on a sunny summit though! :)

Climbed in four days via Disappointment Peak Cleaver scramble. Took two days for the approach. One day for the climb from camp at Glacier Gap. One day to go back to the car. Crampons were necessary to descend one of the snowfields past Glacier Gap. The views were very nice. I ate some huckleberries on the hike back to the pass. The weather was ideal. Very clear skies and warm temperatures.

Climbed with Dennis P.. Excellent weather. Had a great high camp at 7000 near the outlet of the basin west of Glacier Gap. I think EastKing passed by our camp. Some crevasses along route. Boot path crossed right over some. Saw a runner on Saturday who said he completed the roundtrip in about 13 hours!

Beautiful September Day in the mountains. This mountain has the best views of all the volcanoes. I will be putting up a TR very soon. Went with Jimbopo, Fletcher, OneLuv, Mtn.Climber and his son Derek. We did it as a four day trip from the south side.

Hottest weekend of the year in W WA, got to spend it above tree-line and on the snow climbing this beast. Long hike in, gorgeous vistas and open/green slopes, and a walk-up trip to the summit. Went up via the Gerdine Ridge/Cool Glacier route, with the entrance to the Cool starting to really open up, couple more weeks of warm and it would be a real challenge to cross. Great climb, one to remember. (Oh and F-18s buzzed the mountain daily on the trip, really cool to see).

S.Stephenson/B.Bongiovanni were right: get in there and climb this thing - an absolutely gorgeous area....Yikes! Only three left in Smoot's volcano book. Getting closer...Kriegsgefahr Zustand Tahomita!

I joined my mountain mentor Smiley again this year for a climbing blitz in Washington and Oregon, great time on Glacier Peak, used ice axe but no crampons or rope. We scrambled up the rocky ridge to Disappointment Peak on the way up and came down Cool Glacier. Camped below Glacier Saddle the first night, returned back to the car after the summit on day 2. Perfect weather, nice snow conditions.

CoogrrrThe Beautiful and Long Climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 4, 2012


Being from Wenatchee, we decided to approch the mountain via the Little Wenatchee/Meander Meadows trail head. Lots of overgrowth on the trail up to the beginning of the meadow.
It was 15-16 miles to our base camp at the lower portion of the White Chuck Glacier. An early morning start had us at the base of the long snow field, below the Cool Glacier by 8AM. Warm temps and clear nights had keep the snow soft, allowing for optional use of crampons. The snow bridge at the top of the Cool Glacier was still in shape enough allow for easy passage. We reached the final hill and melted water at the base. Afterwards, we did find that water was still melting and available at the base of the last snow field, approx 300 feet below the summit. We reach the summit at 11:30AM and stayed there almost an hour to enjoy possible the best day of summer. The views were spectacular, the temps close to 65, and the wind almost totally absent.
It was 3 1/2 hours down to base camp, and 2 more to our final camp, close to the White Mountain trail junction. 5 1/2 more hours of fast treking out the next day, and lunch at the 59er Dinner.. Lots of smiles, some bumps and bruises, and a lasting memory of a great climb.

The N. Fork Sauk River road opened up last weekend, so we wasted no time getting out there for a summit bid. We arrived at the TH late on Friday night, and only hiked for a half hour before setting up camp. On Sat, we headed all the way to the summit, and then crashed just above Glacier Gap. Out the next day, with beautiful weather the whole time. A great outing!

~ 40 miles, 7 mile N. Fork Sauk road still closed although in perfect condition. Day 1 hike to White Pass (15 miles), Day 2 start at 5:40 am, made it to summit and back to camp about 4:30 pm, descended down to Mackinaw Shelter for Whiskey and a fire. Day 3 hike back ~ 12 miles to car, out by 2:30 p.m.

Chased off of summit by lightning storm that took all day to materialize in the east, made it back round trip from glacier gap in 5.5 hours

The road was shut down due to construction, which made an already epic hike in 12 miles longer. Went in via the White Chuck. The summit from the saddle had some interesting crevasses opening up. We ended up doing 52 miles round trip - quite an adventure coming down in a whiteout in August at night. Didn't see a sign of another human being for 3 days - awesome summit!

Carried over from North to South. The Frostbite Ridge route was varied and interesting, along with being remote uncrowded.

One of the greatest weeks of my life. Solo hiked then skied into south side, lived out of a perfect basecamp for days, skied and climbed Glacier Peak, skied a loop around the Kololo Peaks, all in perfect weather.
