Description

The W and SW Face of Shuksan is written up in Beckey's guide as being the 1962 and '63 routes on the rock face east of the Lower Curtis Glacier. This large (and beautiful) 1,800' rock face apparently has several good lines (the '62 line at the left side, the '63 line in the middle, and the '80 line right of center). From the top of the technical rock continue across the upper Sulphide Glacier to climb the SW ridge of the summit pyramid. Descend as for the Fisher Chimney walk-up route.

Getting There

Approach as for the Fisher Chimney Rt via Lake Ann (good camp spot). From Lake Ann follow the trail NW towards Fisher Chimney, but when possible head east onto the Lower Curtis Glacier and traverse it to the SE corner.
