Snowfield Peak is located within North Cascades National Park and has an expansive glacier called the Neve Glacier on its north flank. Access from the Pyramid Lake Trail and from the lake locate and follow a climber's path up the long ridge to the base of Pyramid Peak, then traverse under steep cliffs prone to slides to get onto the Colonial Glacier. From the glacier ascend to the Colonial-Neve col and from here the objective is in sight where you can see the route through the crevasses on Neve Glacier. Ascend the Neve Glacier to the northwest ridge, climb an east-bearing gully and scramble the final 200 feet on the south slope to the summit on class 3 Skagit Gneiss rock. First ascent by William Degenhardt and Herbert Strandberg on 8/1/1931.
