“Ascent route to Little Tahoma across the Frying Pan Glacier.”— Vikram Sahney
Ascend the steep headwall to gain the Frying Pan Glacier and then begin a long traverse towards Little Tahoma. Aim for the obvious notch to cut over onto the Whitman Glacier. Continue traversing till you can cut up toward the summit of Little Tahoma. The summit climb is loose rock and climbing skills, a rope, and confidence with exposure is recommended.
