Napeequa Valley via Boulder Pass Professional Review and Guide
"Quite possibly the wildest, most awe-inspiring, and revered valley in the whole state, the Napeequa is as magical as it sounds. Guarded by forbidding canyon walls, there are only three ways into this fl ower-bursting, meadow-draped, wide U-shaped valley. Via Boulder Pass is the easiest way—but easy it isn’t. The route is long. The climb is tough. The drop is knee jarring. But to behold from the pass the view of the ice blue Napeequa River slithering through sprawling emerald carpets shadowed by towering walls of glistening rock and ice—is to behold one of nature’s true masterpieces."
--Craig Romano, Backpacking Washington: Overnight and Multi-Day Routes (The Mountaineers Books).
