Mt. Shuksan - Fisher Chimneys

Recommended Posts

Anyone been up the Chimneys lately? Thinking of heading up this weekend and curious if anyone has a recent conditions report of the route.

 

Thanks!

I went up on July 4th. There was only one snow patch in the Chimneys then; I'm sure it's all melted out by now. Not sure how Hell's Hwy will be, but should be a go. Bring ice screws in case you need to set protection on Winnie's Slide, etc.

I went last weekend but only got as far as Winnie's slide (where we camped). Bad weather rolled in and we opted to bag out instead of a long summit-day in whiteout conditions.

 

Trail is snow-free until just below Lake Ann. The chimneys themselves are 95% snow-free, and all snow can be avoided. Above the chimneys is a nice snow-bench for camping; also there are tent platforms up on the rocks below Winnie's slide.

 

Enjoy!
