Ascent Trip Report

Past Holden Lake we had no issues finding the trail keeping the bushwhacking to a minimum. When the trail ends stay to the right of the open flats, but below the slopes. Attached GPS tracks will help finding the trail. Use your own judgement for the waterfall slabs, glacier and climb.

From Holden Village to Holden Pass it is 6.1 miles and approximately 3100 feet total elevation gain.
From Holden Pass to Summit it is approximately 3 miles and 3,200 feet elevation gain.
