Description

Bear Mountain is easily identified from it's west face. It is a sheer wall of vertical rock and ice raging with avalanches of wet slushy Southeast Alaskan snow in the winter and spring. It's classic cone shape (as you can see it from Silver Bay) is heavily windswept and large cornices loom over it's western face. Stretching from the Fjords to 3,747 feet, it may seem small, but it possesses great potential for technical alpine routes.

Getting There

Head south of town on Sawmill Creek Road to the parking lot at Herring Bay.
