One word describes Alaska and that is "BIG!" This not only describes the state but the climbs that are in it. From the single pitch climbs along the Seward Highway to Denali the tallest mountain in North America, Alaska has something to offer everyone. Weather in Alaska can change very quickly. Alaska receives warm weather currents from Japan as well as cold weather currents from the Artic Circle. When the two collide it tends to get nasty!
You can get to Alaska by plane, boat or automobile. Alaskans are very friendly and will give you directions if you get lost or confused.

Thin steep ice and mixed climbing lead to the top of the line which ends about 20 feet away from the summit.
