As @dr_frangelove and I quested into the Wrangell Mountains with @tok_air_service the weather was fickle and we quickly nixed plan A, B, C and... we settled on a obscure zone with numerous 10,000ft peaks🏔 Danny Kost had climbed extensively in the area in the 80's and 90's and dubbed this peak Little Deborah, after its big sister look alike in the AK Range. 📸 @dr_frangelove getting sendy deep in Gnarnia🤘🏻 #wrangellstelias #nationalpark #alaska #wrangellmountains #alpinism #skimountaineering #climbing #skiing #mxythuglife #glaciergangster #bigmtndreams #wilderness #adventure
Beyond humbled and stoked to have shared the sharp end with Mat Brunton of the @anchorage_avalanche_center and Jedi ski plane pilot, @tok_air_service on a mission into Wrangell St. Elias NP to delve into the #hightemple of #Randoism 🙏🏻🎿 With the sum total of our combined experience we managed to stand on top of 11 peaks 🤘🏻😎🤘🏻 #wrangellstelias #alaska #wrangellmountains #alpinism #skimountaineering #mxythuglife #climbing #shwak #glaciergangster #mountains #wilderness #adventure #bigmtndreams

Little morning walk with my bff. #Spring is springing and the forest is still flooded, but things are drying quickly. The landscape of my driveway has certainly evolved over the last few days. Sourdough is looking pretty and wintery though. #nofilter needed for this #alaska day. #mccarthyalaska #wrangellmountains
Back home in the Wrangells, and enjoying this late spring snow! #mccarthy #alaska #steliasguides #wrangellmountains #wrangellstelias

Photo by @wilderphoto. A visitor to Wrangell-St. Elias NP ice climbs his way out of a moulin he’s rapelled into on the Root Glacier. A couple of guiding companies operating out of McCarthy provide adventurous tourists the opportunity to experience what it’s like to be inside of a glacier. •• Images from the story “The Big Unknown” in Smithsonian Magazine’s May issue by Nathaniel Wilder.
Wrangells climbing season is off with a bang! Guides Anya, Cody, Kelly and Sam just completed an April climb of Mt. Drum, one of the most prominent and attractive peaks in the Wrangells. Best known for its western face looming over east-bound Glenn Highway drivers, this 12,010-foot peak is a relatively short and technical climb for moderately experienced mountaineers looking to gain experience in Alaska. Of course our guide-only crew on a budget had to make it even more "fun" by then skiing, hiking and packrafting their way back to the highway after their climb (they were dropped off by ski plane). Oh, and if you are inspired by their pictures, we have a Drum Expedition with space available beginning on May 16th and we are offering a last minute discount for anyone who signs up!.… … … #mtdrum #alaskamountaineering #climbhigh #mountaineering #mountainclimbing #wrangellstelias #wrangellmountains #summitfever #climbhigher #skimountaineering #guidelife
