Ice on the lower Nisqually? 2-3 pitches? FAT?


Recommended Posts

Anyone out there climbing the 2-3 pitch line on the west side of the lower Nisqually glacier about 500 ft north of the Fan this weekend? We could see you from over on Panorama Point - the ice looked fantastic. Looked like a party of three and we paid attention long enough to see the lead about halfway up the first pitch - looked wonderful yesterday. Was wondering because grabbing something like that means you have PICTURES. Share with the class.

Yes that was us. We climbed it last week as well. I put in a trip report. The ice on Nisqually Belle is still in good shape. On Sunday we went higher and climbed a line on a wall of ice at 8000 feet below the bottom of the Muir Snow Field, it was pretty bleached out in spots but still had water running over it so if it stays cold it should stray in
