Glacier travel required. Bring glacier knowledge, mountaineering axe, microspikes and a helmet. Quite a bit of boulder hopping heading up to the toe of the Lane Glacier. Lots of loose rocks easily kicked down on other people. Use caution. This is a legitimate climb, not so much of a hike, once you reach the Glacier.

Awesome climb. Glacier travel required. Bring glacier knowledge, mountaineering axe, microspikes and a helmet. Quite a bit of boulder hopping heading up to the toe of the Lane Glacier. Lots of loose rocks easily kicked down on other people. Use caution. This is a legitimate climb, not so much of a hike, once you reach the Glacier. The long approach to where you begin climbing is beautiful and easy for just about anyone. Lots of history at the Fern Mine. Then you begin to climb... pretty steep, very rocky with mossy boulders... and eventually reach the bench of the terminal moraine, where the Lane Glacier begins. The glacier itself can be dangerous during the wrong time of the year and runs all the way to the peak. It reaches relatively steep grade once you start climbing and only gets steeper as you go up. Be ready to self arrest with an axe if you slip. Lots of rocks that can do some serious damage if you end up sliding into them. By far my favorite climb to date and I was very glad that I went with people who have much more experience than I do. Not sure if the GPS glitched on this app, but it was actually 7.4 miles round trip, a little over 3100 feet of elevation gain and, including exploring the mine, exactly 6 hours of travel.

Breathtaking hike! Make sure to upload the map before hand because there is no service toward the end of Archangel Rd and the path becomes less faint/unrecognizable after the waterfall(s)! This hike is for anyone! To do the whole thing requires quite a bit of experience and time but to get to the first “lake” and even the waterfalls is not too strenuous! Such a gorgeous area, completely unparalleled:)

Overall an easy hike. The climb up the mountain to look over the ridge was difficult but not part of the trail. Nice hike, not a lot of bear activity. Also a few places to check out old mining structures/mine shafts.
