Palisade Glacier Approach

Postby JedSMG » Tue Jul 31, 2012 12:09 am

Hello all,
I just wrote up a bit an "opinion" piece on approaching the Palisade Glacier in summer. I feel, of course, that it offers a valid suggestion, but you may not. Enjoy, and discuss.

Very nice write up. I took that approach before in mid summer and was happy with it. A lot less boulder hop. Although I like to camp by the glacier lake (for the water source).

Very enjoyable ! I hiked with John across Contact Pass and Glacier Notch to Fischer Camp and was shown a Norman Clyde stash near the pass . I think that would be an interesting way to return from Gayley Camp .
