NOTE: During the winter, this trailhead is inside a Washington State Snopark - for snowmobiling. While hiking/snowshoeing is always allowed in this area, visitors must share the roads with snowmobilers. Also, the road leading to the trailhead may be closed depending on conditions. Please check the US Forest Service's website for more information. This trail starts near the Schriebers Meadow, and then follows the Railroad Grade Trail for several miles before reaching the Easton Glacier. Almost all year crampons will be required to traverse the icy areas.

Awesome trip and summit day. Began climb several days earlier at the Park Butte trailhead. Hiked up very nice trail, across Sulfur Creek, through a forested slope with tons of ripe blueberries passing through Schreiber’s and Morovitz Meadows and up the Railroad Grade ridge created by the Easton glacial morraine. The trail is in great shape up until Railroad Grade, where it narrows on the ridge and requires a little more care due to the exposure along the ridge and the dirt/gravel on the trail. Set up camp at Sandy Camp at about 5900 ft. Traversed up the Easton Glacier passing by and over hundreds of crevasses and snow fields, across some icy areas and up the steep snow fields and Roman Wall. We experienced a tricky crevasse crossing / wall climb where our guide free-climbed and set up a top rope so that we could climb on belay up a 15-20’ wall using our ice axe pick and kicking in steps in the wall with our crampons. The rest of the climb was traversing up steep snow fields, past the bergshrund and up the final rock and snow field to the summit. Coming down required a little more care with some of our climbers having trouble staying on their feet with the soft snow in some places and down-climbing the snow wall next to the big crevasse with a top rope and ice axe again on the descent. Given the condition of the snow wall, I expect that route up will need to evolve for the next group of climbers.

Skied 4/1 for a long 1 day adventure. Fun times. Roman wall skied great - a bit grabby down low. Apply sunscreen more than once!
