Hannegan Pass, Aasgard Pass to Snow Lake, Devil’s Dome & Northern Loop Mt. Rainier.
Hannegan Pass / Cooper Ridge
September 12th, 2015.
27 miles / 9k vertical gain / 7 hours
Located in the North Cascades Mt. Baker area
We did an out and back versus a loop because the weather was so stunning we wanted to stay high.
At the summit, the views are endless! 360 degree views of Cascade peaks, including Goat Mountain, the High Divide, and the Nooksack Ridge to the west. To the north are the peaks of British Columbia and the Silesia Creek valley, and to the east, Copper Ridge and Mount Redoubt in the distance. However, the most impressive are with in-your-face vistas of Mount Baker, Ruth Mountain, and Mount Shuksan, the East Nooksack Glacier and the Nooksack Tower.
