Sandy Camp is partially snow covered at this time with about 10-15 dry tent sites available. 4-6 dry tent sites exist higher on the ridge at Climbers Camp. Running water is readily available at all camps.
The route up the Easton Glacier is currently very direct. Significant crevasse crossings exist above 8500 ft, but most parties have had no difficulty climbing past these hazards. Be aware that the recent warm weather will change the glacier drastically and all parties should make careful assessments of snow bridges. The Climbing Rangers have also received multiple reports of very deep, soft snow conditions on the route. Remember to get an early alpine start on your summit day. The summit register on Grant Peak is melted out and awaiting your entries!
Please remember, if you pack it in, to pack it out. This includes flagging, wands, food scraps, trash and human waste. The USFS Public Service Center in Sedro Woolley, WA offers Blue Bags free of charge to climbers. Stop by to register for your climb and pick some up for your trip. Thank you and happy climbing!
