Ranger Update

Rangers Mik Shain and Chris Erickson have been patrolling on the Eldridge Glacier for what has turned out to be a rather foggy, rainy week. Their plans were to hike and packraft out to the Parks Highway today for pickup. 

All staff members are embroiled in sorting, taking inventory, repairing, cleaning, stowing the gear brought down from the mountain.


Route Conditions

We will continue to relay any significant news about the route that we learn from climbers checking back or from guides that may contact us from the mountain in the next week or two.
