Disappointment Peak

July 9, 2017


Mountain Loop Highway, WA

Though officially named, Disappointment Peak is a mere bump on the south ridge of Glacier Peak with only 115 feet of prominence. It has hardly any value other than boosting a peak-bagger’s number up by one.. Furthermore the ascent route is right next to Glacier Peak’s standard route and the detour to check off Disappointment Peak takes at most 20 minutes round trip. For that matter the approach and return is all written in my Glacier Peak’s trip report.

As mighty as Disappointment Peak goes
