North America, United States, Washington-Cascades, "Scimitar" Glacier, Glacier Peak

Publication Year: 1960.

“Scimitar” Glacier, Glacier Peak. Seeking a first ascent, Klindt Vielbig and party climbed this narrow, cliff-enclosed glacier on July 12, only to discover subsequently that it had been climbed in 1957 by Bill Prater and party. No previous report had been made because of confusion of nomenclature, the Ellensburg party having been informed that they had climbed the frequently ascended South Kennedy Glacier. The route is fairly simple, with the exception of a large bergschrund at the mid-way point.
