Participant Information

From the Coleman Glacier flats on the west side of to the lower North Ridge, a 50-degree snow slope leads to the ridge crest. Climb the slope and follow the crest to the base of a prominent ice cliff. From here climb 2–4 pitches of technical alpine ice ranging from 60–85 degrees depending on line choice and conditions. Above the technical ice, we wind along the broad crest weaving through glacier features as needed until you reach the summit plateau.

We will be climbing in two teams of 3
