Description

A full day of touring for snowboarders or skiers of average physical abilities.

Beginning at mile marker 20 on Cascade River Road, use the log to cross the North Fork of the Cascade River. Follow the obvious climbers trail up the mountain staying left of Eldorado Creek. Around 4000 ft, break out of the trees and cross the boulder field. Continue up hill to cross left over the ridge around 6200 ft. Down climb the other side of the ridge to drop onto the Eldorado Glacier.

At 7500 ft, cross the basin. If you are overnighting this is a nice place to lay a tent and ski the Northwest facing Eggplant. Otherwise follow the ridge up the remaining 1100 ft up to the summit.
