Climbing Conditions - Other Southern Peaks
Climbing conditions for peaks and routes south of State Route 20, including Logan, Goode, Black, Ragged Ridge, etc., can be found below (except climbs in Boston Basin, Cascade Pass area, Eldorado, and in the Colonial - Pyramid area). For conditions on climbs other than those listed here, return to Planning a Climb.
Condition reports come from climbing and wilderness rangers, the voluntary climbing register, and other climbers. To make a climbing report, please email the Wilderness Information Center in Marblemount. Please include the route, snow level, any hazards encountered (or not), peak(s) attempted, and whether your party successfully summitted.
All of the climbing routes in the park complex are located in wilderness, but some are wilder than others, and there may be limited or outdated information. Use these reports as a baseline, but plan for changing conditions and a true adventure. On many routes, the discovery, physical stress, and route-finding challenges are half the fun.
