Ice Box 8112' / Box Creek via Carne Mountain High Route, Glacier Peaks Wilderness, WA.
We caught a weather window and backpacked Phelps Creek > Carne Mountain > Carne Mountain High Route trails into Box Creek basin below Ice Box Peak 8112'. The area is located up the Chiwawa River road in the Glacier Peaks Wilderness. The Carne Mountain High Route is a primitive trail and from our camp we dayhiked up Box Creek curving into the high end of the basin then headed up steep scree, talus, dirt, pumice to the main ridge and followed it to the summit. The views were fantastic and the waning wildflowers had their moments. Good times ! 14 miles, 7655' of elevation gain, 2300' of iit off trail scrambling Ice Box.
