Access Issue: Goodell Creek Access Closed Details
The 2015 fire structurally damaged the Upper Goodell Creek Road, melting out culverts and creating other hazards. This trailhead is closed for all users until the road is repaired. Alternate approaches are required.
Description [Suggest Change]
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.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Light alpine rack. Many nut placements possible. A few medium cams for the upper pitches. Crampons may be useful in late season.
