Date: Aug 21, 2020 to Aug 24, 2020

Time: All Day

Category: Mountaineering

Location: Mt. Olympus via Hoh River/Glacier Meadows approach.

Grade: D3

Plan A – Friday August 21 – Monday August 24, 2020

Plan B – If August 21 – 24 weather looks dodgy the trip will be re-scheduled to the following weekend (i.e., August 28-31).

Based on my previous experience climbing this peak, the glacier travel portion of the trip is normally very straightforward.  However, participants should have experience with roped glacier travel and crevasse rescue.  Also, ascent of the final summit block includes a short pitch of ~ 5.4 grade rock climbing.  Participants should be comfortable seconded this grade as well as rappelling the same.

Ps. The Hoh River approach is a long 30+ kms. Here’s some pictures from the 2014 ACC section trip:
