Trip: - Stuart Lake Ice Cragging


Date: 1/7/2012


Trip Report:

If you're looking for ice alternatives in WA and don't mind a beat down approach and deproach, go to the south end oid Stuart Lake. The ice is blue and thick as Kyle Flick and I found out Saturday. Lovely one swing sticks taking easy ice screws. Approach is a beaten in path to the colchuck lake junction. From there we skinned to the lake. Total mileage from Bridge creek campground is close to 10 miles.


the flows pictured are 2 pitches long. We climbed the left and right most lines. Lots of other options up there. We just ran out of time. Obviously a lot of mileage and not enough climbing, this area would best be appreciated camping out up there. As well, looking at the first photo, there is significant avy hazard from the glacier above.

Nice John. Your second pictures looks almost identical to one I climbed about 4 years ago. Lots of ice up there for sure.


Yeah, we vaguely remembered a TR on this area a while ago. Was that yours?


Probably, I posted it in the WA Ice thread a few years back. Turns out it was Feb of 2009...
