Experienced people only. You can go light (no tent) into Place Glacier and plan to stay in the glaciologist huts in the basin. Prepare for a 4-6 hour vertical climb; ie you’re doing the Grouse Grind type of gain for that long. Once in the basin there are excellent scrambles all around. You want to summit early before the glacial melt raises the level of the river and it becomes difficult to cross.
