North Swiftcurrent Glacier Basin
|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
Seen from around South Iceberg Peak. The game trail in the basin is visible, and you can then cross below the moraine or across the snowfields to reach the break in the cliffs that takes you over to the other side and to the Swiftcurrent Pass Trail.
I used the South Iceberg route for my return, and instead of descending into the basin here, I hiked and scrambled to the ridgeline a bit right of the steep snow-filled gully, and then I descended to the Highline Trail to make an easier return to Granite Park.
