From Glacier Lake  Sucess!

First climbed Eagle Cap then glisaded down to Glacier Lake. Headed up the ridge and climbed direct to the summit. Puckered up quite a bit climbing the snow shoot to the summit. No gear other than trekking poles. Was a great day!

From Frazier lake  Sucess!

Climbed with Mr clam but opted out of the free soloing of the dragon spine. I scrambled east of the spine across fields of granite up onto the east ridge.

Route Climbed: East Ridge Date Climbed: Sept 04, 2005  Sucess!

Climbed with group the same day as Eagle Cap. Easy fun scrambling over granite slabs -- hardest bit was crossing icy snowfield sans crampons roughly north/northwest of Glacier Peak. Traversed over to the east side of Glacier Peak and ascended the ridge above Prospect Lake. Great weather & views on top!

Route Climbed: NW ridge from Eagle Cap Date Climbed: September 4, 1977  Sucess!

Climbed this one on the same day as Eagle Cap, hiking the ridge from Eagle Cap. From the summit we headed down x-country back to our camp at Frazier Lake. It was my first two-summit day.

Route Climbed: East ridge Date Climbed: Aug. 12th, 2004  Sucess!

I did a 30 mile training run starting at Wallowa Lake through the lakes basin in '96 and in the process went up to the summit of Eagle Cap. I took a few pics of adjacent Glacier Peak on the trip and never forgot it's beauty.



I was able to repeat the trip, but from the Lostine River trailhead on Aug. 12th, 2004, (and this time took a much better camera!)



This was one of the hottest days of the year - 105 degrees in some of the lower elevation towns in Oregon, so it was perfect for a dash to the summit with a bare minimum of equipment to both Eagle Cap and Glacier Peak. 23.3 miles total and two peaks bagged. What a day!
