Description

Show up to Seward on a clear day and this peak just begs to be climbed! The southwest face is a great snow climb with 2 short rock curx, depending on conditions. This route follows a less obvious weakness/couloir from the glacier up to a snow slope, which leads to the upper snow slope. Gain the ridge and scramble up some decent rock for the area. A few variations exist to the summit. Descent: Down climb route w/ 1 or 2 rappels.

Location

Follow the Mount Alice hikers trail to just bellow treeline where it forks and stay left. Traverse/descend/bushwack into the hanging valley and follow that up into the bowl.

Protection

A few mid-size cams for the top, crampons, ice axe and maybe a picket or 2. Webbing for rap anchors.
