This traverse follows a high route west across the Glacier Peak Wilderness through continuously phenomenal terrain. The adventurous explorer is rewarded with multiple steep, 3500-foot descents and many transitions above 7000 feet in a remote section of the Cascades. Any one of the suggested campsites could be respected as a multiday destination base camp with the plethora of hard-to-reach ski objectives in its immediate vicinity, and each camp will have you pondering future trips.
