Description

This is a section of the famous Long's Peak approached via Glacier Gorge. At least one route on snow/ice/mixed wanders up from this basin.

Getting There

Park at the Glacier Gorge Junction trailhead (a mile below Bear Lake), and follow signs to cliff-ringed Black Lake at 5 miles. Cross the lake at the outlet boulders and follow up the East side. Scramble over talus and ledges up to the snow. The route is the longest finger of snow and reaches up into the NW face of the mountain
