Ascending the Sulphide Glacier on Mount Shuksan with Mountain Madness

Mount Shuksan Sulphide Glacier

Iconic North Cascades Peak For Beginners

Mt. Shuk­san, one of the most pho­tographed moun­tains in the world, is a mas­sive, com­plex peak which offers abun­dant learn­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties for begin­ner climbers. It is an excel­lent ascent on diverse ter­rain, includ­ing both glac­i­er trav­el and a rock scram­ble to the sum­mit, all with mind-blow­ing views of the wild North Cascades.

Walk in the foot­steps of leg­ends in a place unchanged for eons. Accord­ing to North­west climb­ing leg­end Fred Beck­ey this peak epit­o­mizes the jagged alpine peak like no oth­er mas­sif in the North Cascades…it has no equal in the range when one con­sid­ers the struc­tur­al beau­ty of its four major faces and five ridges and the vari­ety of routes they pro­vide.” Fred spent a lot of time here — come see what it’s all about.
