Day 1 • Hike to Camp
Meet 9:00am at the Northwest Mountain Shop. Gear check and drive to the trailhead. Hike to Boston Basin. We camp at the base of the Quien Sabe Glacier. Basic skills review.
Day 2 • Summit Day • Sahale Peak • 8,680ft
Summit day starts early. The climb ascends the Quien Glacier from camp to the Boston Sahale Col. Our route traverses a rock and snow ridge before reaching the final summit pitch. We scramble rock (class 3) to the summit. The views from the summit are amazing with a 360 degree panorama of the Cascade Range. From here we have the option of descending the route or traversing the peak and descending the Sahale Arm to Cascade Pass.
