Hiked to the glacial basin, camped, and ascended the glacier in 100 degree heat. One for the books.
With Hannah and Kasey
06/03/19 w/Kyrah Kirchner, Ryan Stadheim, and Paul Fotter.
What an incredible day. Experienced just about everything that is great about Glacier on this ascent.
2012 - w/ Xenja Poljakowa
Also climbed Mt. Logan and reached Blackfoot Mt. from ridge between the two, descended via Blackfoot Glacier to eastern terminal moraine.
Via gunsight. One of the best in the park, as far as I'm concerned.
Climbed Blackfoot from Almost-a-Dog Pass via a traverse of Mount Logan.
With Ron and April.
Climbed this twice. Once with buddy Larry, H. late season, and got caught in a snow storm, high on the mountain. One of my most EPIC trips!
Climbed in: 1) August 2001 (with Rick Hanners, lower glaciers were dry, hard ice); 2) July 2002, lead a GMS group of 4-5, also bagged Walton that trip; 3) July 2006 with J. Foster & R. Laudati. Tried Walton & got weathered off, but had a great trip up Blackfoot.
Always hauled overnight gear in & camped at Jackson Glacier basin, attempted multiple peaks in the area. The glaciers continue to recede and getting around the ice cliff is more challenging each trip.
As BFrench says, it would be a very long day from the road.
AC, BP and I combined with Logan. Long day from the road!
Dayhike with Vern(66) and Ron(19?) completed in about 13 hours
