Classic Snow and Ice Climbs of the Alaska Range

View Slideshow »
The Alaska Range is one of the world’s finest mountain environments and North America’s premier alpine climbing destination. At 20,320 feet, the continent’s highest peak Denali is the central focus of the range. Because of the lure of climbing to this lofty point, a network of easy access has been created to allow climbers to explore the magnificent peaks surrounding Denali as well. This area, referred to as the Central Alaska Range, contains some of the biggest, baddest, and steepest peaks to be found anywhere. Expert climbers from around the world come here year after year to put their skills to the test. But the range is certainly not limited to the elite. An array of easier peaks and “back-side” routes makes it just as appealing to novice and intermediate climbers. From easy and moderate snow routes to the highly technical test-pieces, the range has something for everyone. This slideshow presents an overview of some of the things that await Alaska Range climbers.
