Inspiration Glacier Traverse Professional Review and Guide
"The expansive sheets of ice that form the Inspiration, Klawatti, and McAllister glaciers of the Cascade Crest region create a mountainous setting as savage and pristine as any in Washington. An extended outing following ridgelines and then traversing the course of these multiple glaciers is an experience not soon forgotten. Intense alpine glaciation has resulted in many cols between pinnacles in the plateau, where constantly active ice and weather sculpt the landscape into otherworldly forms. It is a realm of staggering brilliance, of stark contrast between the blackness of the protruding, serrated rock crests and the seemingly endless and blinding expanse of white glacier and snow."
