Register with the NP Mountaineering Headquarters in Talkeetna, AK before climbing in the park! Details
DescriptionModerate snow climbing and a small 'shrund/moat crossing gains the first rock band. There are many ways up the Munchkin, this route trends up the west rock band, but a party could just as easily climb the snowfield, or another rock section.
Once the ridge has been gained, you must cross a short snowfield as shown in the photo. A mountain axe is nice to have, as are boots. We did it in rock shoes with a mountain axe, and it was a cold little traverse.
