The root Glacier offers many summer ice climbing options, and as it is glacier ice it is constantly changing. I found numerous possible climbing areas that could be set as top-ropes or lead within the first 1/2 mi hiking up from the toe of the glacier.


All over!

When setting up top ropes I'd suggest v threads, saw most of the guides using ice screws, this can be okay if you check them every laps, bu weighted won't last long.
