This was a great weather day as we were able to have a pleasant climb of Daniel on snow for much of the off-trail.
Followed climbers path until the ridge steepened, then cut right across snow and rocks directly to saddle between east peak and ? peak.
a long dayhike with Bala, made longer by a washout before the trailhead :). a nice long day in the Cascade mountains.
Being in the 'general area' after climbing Argonaut Peak, bagged Mt. Daniel via the Hyas Creek Glacier Headwall in a single long day.
Camped at Peggy's Pond, climbed next day. Great weather and fun climb.
Climbed this as a final "student-led" objective for a 13-day mountaineering course. What a great climb! The views of Rainier, Baker and other peaks were outstanding. Shared the summit with great friends. It appears that all the glaciers on this mountain are disappearing. This was a sobering realization.
Nice climb with great friends.
Skirted Pea Soup Lake and up the glacier.
Still one of my favorites. Saw two 5-year olds at the top. Total hardcores.
This was a great climb on a beautiful day. A long dayhike that took me about 10 hours via the Cathedral Rock Trailhead.
went up SE ridge and did the middle and west peaks. what an excellent climb! topped it off with a dip in peggy's pond and mexican food at el caporal in cle elum.
Fun trip. Went in via Peggys Pond. Summited 3 of the 5 peaks. Clouds began to break up as we ascended the true summit giving us views of Hinman, and a peak at pea soup lake.We dedided to make a loop of it.Our descent took us down past Jade and Spade lakes, visiting deadhead lake and back out past deep lake.
One of the most beautiful climbs I've ever done.
Camped at Peggy's pond, and summited the next day in a white-out. The route finding put us on fourth class terrian trying to connect the lower and upper glaciers. No view that day.
Spent the night at Peggys pond. Great weather on the way up till I hit the southern saddle of the eastern summit. No views while on top of the true summit. But the weather cleared again as I descended. On my descent I dropped across the snowfield and traversed the granite slabs and loose choss on the nothern side of the Hyas glacier. Beautiful area.
An amazing climb with some unbelievable views! Went up Hyas Creek Glacier and up the wall, but next time it might be fun to do Lynch Glacier.
What a climb! This was one of the better hikes I've ever done, thanks to beautiful weather and a great mix of scenery. We camped at Peggys Pond and started up first thing in the morning. I wasn't expecting the route from the main trail to Peggys Pond to be so hairy. I definately want to come back here.
a very enjoyable climb made a day trip out of it it was about 8 hours car to car. the actual climb was a bit short but very enjoyable with awesome scenery. descended via the southeast ridge i think doing the loop is the best option could make a weekend out of it and enjoy what the area has to offer maybe also make a trip up cathedral rock. safe journeys
Done in combination with climb of Cathedral Rock on the previous day. Anchor failure on Cathedral Rock was nearly disastrous. Uneventful slog up the basin and traverse to reach the summit of Mt Daniel.
