Description

Several well reviewed climbs live back in this alpine environment. A bit a journey to get there but worth the hike. A full day adventure is to be had if you going here! Can be very windy and cold and can snow any day it damn well pleases. Not uncommon for it to be 70 in town and have it snow up here on you so bring lots of warm clothes! Cell service is spotty at best so be prepared for anything. Have fun!

Getting There

Drive up to the Glenn Alps parking lot (also known as the flattop parking lot). From here head east on the Powerline pass trail until the Hidden Lake turnout. Take a left here and head across the bridges and gravel trail. Continue up the valley to the back of the bowl and the climbs are on your right. Strike out across the tundra and up a short boulder/talus field to the bases of the climbs. At least a 2 hour approach but you can make it shorter by riding bikes to the Hidden Lake turnoff.
