Mendenhall Towers south faces.

Description 

Located about 12 miles north of Juneau this 7 summited massif has numerous routes from 500ft to 2500ft. The south faces are much cleaner but shorter than those on the north.


Getting There 

There are several ways to get out there, ski from blackerby ridge north until you reach the north branch of the mendenhall glacier. Or head directly up the mendenhall glacier via the west glacier trail. Most parties however just take the 15-20 minute flight from Juneau with coastal helicopters.
