Agazziz Glacier Basin/SE Ridge
These fact that anyone knocks this one off in a day is amazing. Happy to have climbed this one in a relaxing six hour day.camp.to camp. From the aggaziz Only one more ten thousand footer to GO
Plans were to do both Kintla and Kinnerly. Started out canoeing the lower kintla lake, hiked up to the start of the bushwack traverse to an undesignated campsite on the northwest base of peabody peak. From there, we traversed grassy ledges to finally find a dried up drainage down into the aggassiz glacier basin. Traverse the basin to the saddle between Kintla and Peabody, and then summited Kintla via it's southern ridgeline. Traced our selves back to the saddle, and then traversed to the base of the notch between Kintla and Kinnerly for an overnight bivy. Due to time (we all had work the next day back at Lake McDonald, and I didn't have front point crampons to ascend the snow filled notch) we decided to leave Kinnerly for another time in our lives. The bushwack back to the trail sucked ass, would recogmmend it to anyone seeking a lot of fun and enjoyment in Glacier!
