3 Day Guided Climbing Trip On Mount Shuksan. Includes Professional Guide And Group Equipment.
This crown jewel of the North Cascades is one of the most beautiful mountains in America, and this guided climb of Mt. Shuksan is unforgettable. The majestic approach is through alpine meadows abounding with wildflowers and mountain goats. The guided climb of Mount Shuksan is via Sulphide Glacier to the base of the summit pyramid. There is 400 feet of rock climbing (scrambling!) to the 9,127-foot summit. On the descent you get to do multiple rappels to the base of the glacier, which is a great way to learn how to rappel with provided instruction. High camp is at the “toe” of the glacier in the meadow at 6,500′. In this amphitheater of the North Cascades, you are surrounded by jagged peaks with Mount Baker looming in the distance.
