So close

Got within spitting distance of the final summit pyramid climb but snow conditions were sketchy at best and I was solo.

Fabulous Camping  Sucess!

With pack up Sahale Arm to the fabulous campground, then in the morning after a splendid sunset and all night goat raids at all the other camps (secure your food guys)I scooted up the glacier to the summit, which some use rope for, though it is not necessary. Took the excursion over to Boston too, a deadly little blob of loose rock which still has a near empty summit log book from the 1960s. Do not miss it.

sahale arm  Sucess!

hiked up the sahale arm with my lady and good friends, and when they decided to stop at the top of the arm, i kept going solo up to the top. very fun scramble and gorgeous views the whole way. i LOVE cascade river road.

Sahale  Sucess!

Went up the Quien Sabe and down the Sahale arm. Long day but cool mountain.

Sahale Mountain  Sucess!

It's been over 20 years - I really need to come back and do this one again.

Good intro climb  Sucess!

Been up this a number of times. This is the classic spot to bring friends new to climbing. Easy and quick approach, then a half pitch at summit with a rappel. THE North Cascades classic view out over the peaks of the Ptarmigan Traverse. This way, you can give 'em the bug which leads to the addiction *before* they find out that most North Cascades climbs involve much more suffering... and then it's too late for 'em, they'll probably keep coming back. As opposed to, for example, taking 'em to the Pickets first time out... they'll never go on a climb with you again.

Fun Climb  Sucess!

On our way to Boston Peak we climbed Sahale as a bonus. I've already climbed this peak before but it was fun a second time.

Sahale Arm route  Sucess!

After hiking to the glacier camp I knew I had to come back and finish this one off. We did a day trip up Sahale Arm and made it to the summit with little trouble. There are a few exposed moves up there and in retrospect we probably should have had a rope to get down. We made it back in one piece though and enjoyed a nice glissade down the glacier. Even saw a few goats on the glacier, what they were doing there who know?

Beautiful mountain in a spectacular area

Nice View  Sucess!

Side trip on a failed attempt at Buckner. Sahale is a surreal view point, especially with a marine layer dumping over Cascade Pass and evaporating. That same marine layer would do us in the following morning as we tried to get across Horseshoe Basin.

Beautiful rock  Sucess!

Climbed a steep snow chute east of the south face. First trip to N Cascades.

My Personal Favorite  Sucess!

This is my favorite mountain of all time. Each time up had a unique experience, but on July 1 when I actually summited it became my scariest trip of all time. Loose snow with no protection is not exactly my cup of tea.

Dayhike to climber's camp

Just a dayhike, so stopped at the base of the glacier. Wow - amazing views the whole way! Definitely want to come back and go higher!

My girlfriend & I went up and camped at the Sahale Glacier Campsites, it is a great place to camp. The weather was great the next day and we made it up to where the snow meets the rock. There was an unusual amount of snow for this time of the year, the standard route was too sketchy and the other options (class four) were of loose, wet rock (light snowfall the prior night) and we decided to retreat. will be back though.
