Climb Glacier Peak with Pacific Alpine Guides

Washington's fourth highest mountain at 10,585', Glacier Peak is a remote stratovolcano that is not quite as easy to get to as Mt. Baker or Mt. Rainier. And this is what makes it special. Like Mt. Olympus, the longer approach to Glacier Peak filters out the crowds, offering a true wilderness summit ascent via a moderate climbing route. We offer 4-day climbs of Glacier Peak July through September.
