Description

3,000ft of glacier travel right off the road! Park at the Worthington Glacier TH and follow the well worn path to the toe of the glacier.

Easily ascend up the toe of the Worthington glacier. A crevasse field is encountered at the apex at about 3600ft, you can easily escape to the moraine trail at around this elevation. The slope gradually steepens from AI 2 on the climbers left and AI 3 the further right you are on the face.
9 months out of the years this is an awesome ski mountaineering objective and August through early October the North Face has +1,000ft of alpine ice.

To descend take the Moraine Trail down for a easy and fast descent back to the TH.

Protection

Glacier travel kit, ice screws, crampons and two ice tools.
