Participant Information

The classic, standard route on Shuksan. We will hike in and camp at Lake Ann on Saturday, have an alpine start early on Sunday to attempt the peak. Due to group size, I would like to take two different routes on the summit pyramid in order minimize possible rockfall and exposure from above: one party climbs class 3/4 gully, and the other party climbs the 5.4 SE rib. We can further discuss these options in detail. The trip will be dependent on the weather.

A short summary of the route can be found here: http://www.summitpost.org/fisher-chimneys/155674

For a more detailed description, please refer to Alpine Select (climbs in SW BC and Northern WA), pg 352.

Route statistics:

Elevation gain: 2060m

Return trip: 27km

Alpine Grade: AD-

A Northwest Forest Pass is required for each vehicle. This can be obtained from the ranger station in Glacier, or online at https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/r6/passes-permits/recreation/?cid=fsbdev2_027009
