The weather can be just about anything mid summer. We got rained on, snowed on and had blue bird skys.

Getting There 

From the Archangel road continue on the trail towards Reed Lakes. Once you hit the old abandoned shack take the next trail left that goes up the steep grassy hill. You will follow a small dirt trail through the valley to the pass. You may lose it but stay low and go straight for the pass. Approx. 5 miles.

Once at the pass, you will see the Nunatak and the Because It's There Wall.

Thanks for putting this up. I'll have to go and get some more info.

And I'm not sure how this works out. Glacier travel may be involved, but it is my understanding that these are rock routes, and shouldn't be under the ICE section. I don't know

No problem, I hope this little info helps.

Yeah, go out there and get some photos and info, it's a beautiful place.

And does anyone know if the new Hut is built out there yet? I know its being built soon, if not done. Please let me know, Thanks.
