Around 10,000ft on the N. Ridge
Register with the NP Mountaineering Headquarters in Talkeetna, AK before climbing in the park!

Description 

The route starts as the North East ridge (though any way up the apron works) before joining and becoming the North ridge proper. The talus/4th class rock field going up to the ridge can be a bit slippery. Once on the ridge, moderately exposed ridge climbing abounds with plenty of camping spots above 9000ft. The ridge is absolutely beautiful.


Location 

Start at the looker's lower left (viewed from Oastler Pass) where you will find a great tundra/rock campsite. There are unlimited ways to gain the ridge. Descend the line of ascent. The route is very obvious in good weather conditions.


Protection 

Pickets.
