Description [Edit]

Peak 11,300 is one of the last high points on the southeast spur of Denali. The peak is located off of the west fork of the Ruth glacier just north of Mount Huntington.

Getting There [Edit]

The peak is often approached from any of the common landing areas in the Ruth gorge. Landing at the base of the south west ridge is also possible.

Protection

[Edit]
An alpine rock rack, pickets and 4-6 ice screws. Most of the climbing is on rock and snow, but ice screws may be needed for the final 500' and the upper part of the descent.

Puryear's guidebook suggests 1-3 days for the climb and 6-12 hours for the descent. Allow more time for the descent if the upper part of the SE ridge is mostly ice.
