My research indicates that only Exit Guided Tours can get us onto the Exit glacier. Is that because the glacier is privately owned and they have an arrangement? I understand the reasons to keep things controlled and if everyone did what they wanted people would get hurt and there would be garbage everywhere. But we have our own crampons, GPS, bear spray, and sense of adventure. What would happen if we started up EGT's trail? Are there any "private" trails that can be used to get us onto the glacier? I don't have anything against EGTs, but what about some yokel who wants $100 to guide us up a hidden trail? Is there absolutely positively no other way to walk on it other than through EGTs?
