BRITISH COLOMBIA APPROACH

A vehicle for logging roads, brushy talus, climbing next to a waterfall, glacier travel, steep snow, and exposed third class near the summit characterize the Canadian approach via Depot Creek and Redoubt Glacier.

NORTH CASCADES NATIONAL PARK APPROAHES

Any American approaches replace glacier travel with more backpacking and bushes. From Bear Lake, the Southern Route of Mt Redoubt avoids crevasses and is just snow and exposed scrambling.

Unfortunately, hiking through the forest of Bear Creek, to get to Bear Lake, is brushy. Beckey recommends Indian Creek as less bushy.

Another, longer, way avoids the bushes by traversing high ridges from Whatcom Pass to Bear Lake. A chasm blocks the ridge hike above Indian Creek's headwaters. Dropping off the ridge into upper Indian Creek could require a rappel from small trees.

ROUTE

From the base of the south side snowfield, climb the snow, first passing through a cliff band , then follow easier terrain leftwards, and finally up an exposed gully to the top.

EQUIPMENT

Ice Axe, crevasse rescue kit, boots, crampons, rope, and a small rack.
