IagosGhostRoute Climbed: Peggy's Pond/Daniel Glacier  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 12, 2007


Climbed this as a final "student-led" objective for a 13-day mountaineering course. What a great climb! The views of Rainier, Baker and other peaks were outstanding. Shared the summit with great friends. It appears that all the glaciers on this mountain are disappearing. This was a sobering realization.

This was a great climb on a beautiful day. A long dayhike that took me about 10 hours via the Cathedral Rock Trailhead.

Fun trip. Went in via Peggys Pond. Summited 3 of the 5 peaks. Clouds began to break up as we ascended the true summit giving us views of Hinman, and a peak at pea soup lake.We dedided to make a loop of it.Our descent took us down past Jade and Spade lakes, visiting deadhead lake and back out past deep lake.

Camped at Peggy's pond, and summited the next day in a white-out. The route finding put us on fourth class terrian trying to connect the lower and upper glaciers. No view that day.

Spent the night at Peggys pond. Great weather on the way up till I hit the southern saddle of the eastern summit. No views while on top of the true summit. But the weather cleared again as I descended. On my descent I dropped across the snowfield and traversed the granite slabs and loose choss on the nothern side of the Hyas glacier. Beautiful area.

An amazing climb with some unbelievable views! Went up Hyas Creek Glacier and up the wall, but next time it might be fun to do Lynch Glacier.

What a climb! This was one of the better hikes I've ever done, thanks to beautiful weather and a great mix of scenery. We camped at Peggys Pond and started up first thing in the morning. I wasn't expecting the route from the main trail to Peggys Pond to be so hairy. I definately want to come back here.

a very enjoyable climb made a day trip out of it it was about 8 hours car to car. the actual climb was a bit short but very enjoyable with awesome scenery. descended via the southeast ridge i think doing the loop is the best option could make a weekend out of it and enjoy what the area has to offer maybe also make a trip up cathedral rock. safe journeys

Done in combination with climb of Cathedral Rock on the previous day. Anchor failure on Cathedral Rock was nearly disastrous. Uneventful slog up the basin and traverse to reach the summit of Mt Daniel.

Did this two day climb death march style and knocked it out in one day. Sorry no pics my camera battery froze. I guess I have to go back and do it again now.

This route is much longer than the standard routes but it was worth the extra effort. Great alpine scenery and nice mixed snow and rock climb. Climbing in a loop is definitely more enjoyable, especially traversing Lynch glacier was very memorable. Bugs first chased us first from Marmot lake and then from Peggy's Pond. Two day climb and a long drive back home to Portland at 5 in the morning just to be at work at 9...
