Access Issue: Goodell Creek Access Closed Details


Access a small buttress under the south face via the glacier, climb up and right to access a right-trending ramp, belay below a corner system, trend up and left to connect with obvious gash in upper south face. Chimney up the gash to the top. Descent: scramble downward a few hundred feet toward a notch and rappel.


Light alpine rack. Many nut placements possible. A few medium cams for the upper pitches. Crampons may be useful in late season.


What was failed to be mentioned is THE APPROACH (death march):

4+ miles of trail along Goodell Creek, followed by

interminable and killer slog for at least 5000 vertical feet of what is euphemistically referred to as a "climbers path" (including thick, steep brush but excluding any water sources)

another mile of sidehill traverse on said "path"

several hundred feet of talus or snow to a saddle only to drop 400 feet down steep snow on the other side (ice axe required, crampons advised)

another mile or two of scree/talus/snow to get to the edge of the glacier shown in the photo above Jun 20, 2013
