Sun-Mon, May 29-30 – GLACIER/ICEFLOE/MOUNTAINEER PEAKS (Missions)
Rating: Class 3-4; Distance: 13-16 miles round trip; Elevation Gain: 7200-8200’
Description: This is a make-up date from the same trip rained out in April. Will hike up to the Lucifer Lake area on Sunday morning, find a place to set up a camp, then climb one or more of these peaks. Monday morning (Memorial Day) we can climb whatever we didn’t climb the day before, then head out again. Tentative plan is to climb the south ridge of Icefloe Peak (Peak 9328’) and traverse to Glacier Peak (9407’). A possibility could then be to traverse the Garden Wall for a climb of Mountaineer Peak (9261’). Will probably bring a rope and harness, ice axe, crampons. Tribal Recreation Permit needed as well.
Following is a series of trips proposed by Tim Bombaci. “Now is the time to express your intention to participate so real planning and personal communication can happen. As usual, I ask that participants be reasonably competent, safe, self-contained and self-reliant.” [I have looked into Tim’s qualifications to lead these trips, and he is very qualified. Alden Wright]
