Description

A classic steep/extreme ski descent in the Chugach Front Range (FRange). Also a classic alpine snow climb that's a step up from Ptarmigan North. May require down-climbing as a ski descent based on conditions, skill, and comfort level. Crampons (boot & ski) are advisable for skiers, as is an axe or ice tool (or at least a whippet). Steep and exposed for most of the 2000'+.

Location

NW O'Malley Peak above Black Lake.

Protection

Steep snow with possible rock steps on thin years. There's usually a rocky choke in the lower 1/3 and a short section of easy mixed climbing if you want to top out to the ridge.
