    Each climb to the top of Glacier Peak is traveling in a truly "wild" and untouched pristine region of the North American nature. The mountain previously had not been overcrowded with tourists and became even more secluded after several severe floods in recent years. Floods made it even less accessible and remote from the visits of "random" climbers. Only the motivated and well-trained climbers as well as most masterful skiers come here. Wide opportunities for ice climbing and long routes allow you to escape from city and to raise your climbing skills to a new level.

    Glacier Peak is a stratovolcano in Washington State, 3206 m high. It is a part of the volcanic arc belonging to the Cascade Range and is the highest point of the ridge of the same name, as well as the fourth highest peak of the state. The area around the mountain is characterized by a mixture of wooded terrain and ice desert. Mount has one of the most difficult access in the whole region - from isolation distance point of view as well as due to undeveloped region's general tourist infrastructure. Travelling to the mountain base camp usually takes about 15 km on foot. Most of the routes to the summit are pretty difficult. Climbing usually takes at least 2-3 days even for experienced climbers. Wildlife species include several that epitomize Wilderness: grizzly bears, wolverines, gray wolves. The mountain is covered with snow all the year. The best time for climbing is the period from May to October, and mostly people come here in July - the best weather and the lowest risk of avalanches. Glacier Peak is popular among fans of extreme ski descent due to its long snowy slopes.
