08-22-2017-Whitney Glacier

Submitted by nmeyers on Tue, 08/22/2017 - 9:46am
Route Name: 
Whitney Glacier
Climbing Route Conditions: 

Rangers have not climbed the Whitney Glacier in total, but have spent some time on the upper portions this year. Like all the other glaciers, most crevasses are melting out and quickly beginning to open. This route is not often climbed, but is simply stunning. The best beta we can give for this route is to stay current with the weather conditions. Climb the center or left center on the glacier. Avoid the climbers right side of the glacier as rockfall off Shastina is almost constant, especially as it starts to melt out. Check our 'trailheads' tab under 'climbing' for road status. Full glacier travel protocol and skills are absolutely necessary to be considering this route.
