Sahale Mountain and Boston Peak Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Sahale Mountain is one of the most popular summits in the North Cascades not only because it is relatively simple and safe to climb, but also because it provides stunning views of the Cascade Pass region. Sahale is climbed either from the Sahale Arm, which extends north from Cascade Pass, or from Boston Basin, the wide alpine meadow north of Sahale Arm. Connected to Sahale by a broad saddle, Boston Peak is even more massive and impressive. The name of the mountain was derived from the Boston Mine and the largest glacier in the region — the Boston Glacier — which occupies the huge cirque to the north and east. Boston Peak is not climbed as often as Sahale, mainly because the rock on the steep summit section on the southern flank is extremely loose (proving fatal for one climber). But you can find easier terrain if you circle around the summit and reach it via the north ridge."
