DescriptionThe crux of this route is the approach. Bring your best route finding skills with you. It would be hard to describe so I've included a few photos. Basically, from White Pass, on the PCT, hike the Foam Creek trail for 1 1/2 to 2 miles. Cross the ridge at a knoll to the North and cross the basin in front of you to reach Glacier Gap.
You have to zig and zag, up and down, over a lot of snowy terrain.
