Did this as a side trip while backpacking between Spangle Lake and Ardeth. Great views. Easy ridge hike from the trail.

Climbed from pass between Spangle and Ardeth Lakes on Day 3 of a 5 day loop trip. Mostly class 2 with a class 3 blocky section at the top. Gorgeous views on a clear day.

Part of a multi-day hike. Camped at Edna Lake and headed up the west ridge of Glens Peak via the saddle above Ardeth Lake.

Day 2 of 4. Backpacked the 12 miles into Ardeth lake from Yellowbelly lake the day before. Hiked with some scrambling to this tauntingly prominent peak. Incredible 360 views on a clear day. Heaven on earth for sure. How many people get to see and do this, really?! Back at the saddle, we dropped into the Spangles, Ingeborg, and Rock Slide (the most photogenic) lakes. Smoke moved in late afternoon, and we felt super lucky to have gotten a clear day up til then. Awesome!

Great peak in a great area. Climbed the east ridge from Ten Lake Basin during an excellent backpacking trip. Tried to stay true to the ridge, but had to retreat to the south face because of some exposed Class 4 I didn’t want to tackle since I was solo. Trip Report

Camped at Ardeth and had a whole day to summit Glens and explore in Ten Lakes Basin. Quite a treat for a kid from the Washington Cascades. No summit register found, just old rusted cans.

I did Glens Peak as park of a Scout backpacking trip from Atlanta to Redfish this past week. The area is incredible and the peak is easy if you're in the neighborhood. It really is quite remote but is an excellent side trip for a backpacking trip in the area. I did it via the west ridge from the pass above Spangle Lakes. GREAT view!

Took a big chance and thought the ridgeline above Toxaway would allow access to the Glens Peak East Ridge. Luckily it worked out and I was able to do this in a day. Still at 21 miles 6100 feet, it's a long day. The lakes near Glens are spectacular!
