Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closure at Newhalem Crags March 1st to mid-July Details


The Sahale Glacier route ascends the Sahale Glacier to the SW side of the summit pyramid base. Steeper snow or 3rd and 4th class scrambling leads to a flat ledge/mini saddle below a short chimney-like feature on the south side of the pyramid, which is climbed to the summit (5.0).


From Cascade Pass, hike the Sahale Arm to Sahale Glacier camp. Glacier travel begins beyond this point.


A few pieces of rock pro can protect the final moves to the summit. There is typically a slung block on top which serves as a rappel station. Roping up on glaciers is generally a good idea, though the Sahale Glacier is small and not very active.
