Glacier Basin Route

Plan for a long day! We made it to around 6,000' before we had to turn around due to time, snow conditions and signs of avalanche danger. Glacier Basin is beautiful and the views from were we got on Cadet were great. Postholed for hours in thigh high snow, first couple gullies are extremely steep, too steep for snowshoes. Very annoying snow conditions around mystery hill. Signs of ice caves forming with the melting snow off of rocks. Be careful, lots of hollow sections and snow bridges over the creek. We will be back this summer to finish what we started.
