FATMAP difficulty grade
Rated extreme because this bushwhack is for real.
A class 4 bushwhack in fact noted by CT (risk of serious injury and inevitably coming out bloodied).
This was a three day journey for us traveling the 12 miles up Pincho Creek to basecamp 1.
The route here is for our summit push day.
Some research about the bushwhack is necessary but moreso just a fearless desire to face grizzly bears and bash through a forest to get into the heart of glacier national park.
