Begin at the Nooksack Cirque trail and traverse through some times thick brush to a ridge on the south side of Price Lake. Ascend rock slabs up and to the right until you top the ridge to find bivouac sites, or continue up and right onto the glacier to bivouac on the saddle below Nooksack Tower. From the saddle drop down to pass under Nooksack Tower and traverse right and upward along the Price Glacier to the glacial plateau, negotiating your way around and through crevasses and bergschrunds. Cross the plateau to the summit pyramid. Descend via the Fischer Chimneys route to Lake Ann.
