To get to the summit of Anderson, you need to traverse heather slopes, snow fields, cross ridges and ascend 800 feet of a 3rd class gully as well as a snow slope from a high camp. Good routefinding skills required! Note: there was extensive trail damage on this approach in 2001, and you should call ahead before you try this climb to be sure the route is open. The approach hike to this peak is one of the longest in the NW, so you were warned.
