Register with the NP Mountaineering Headquarters in Talkeetna, AK before climbing in the park!


Beautiful ridge climb. Most experienced parties will not place any protection, though there is a short 50ft section that may approach 40-45 degrees. Crevasses exist both at the route's base and on the ridge proper. Many false summits, but the true summit (which is huge) is well worth the view.


The route can include Mt. Capps, the small bump on the ridge connecting Denali's West Buttress to Kahiltna Dome. Otherwise pick the path of least resistance up from the head of the Kahiltna Glacier. Total time 5-8 hours roundtrip from 9,700ft camp. The ridge can be skied as well.
