Mt. Bona Expedition

Classic big-mountain climbing in Alaska's St. Elias Range

At 16,421 ft (5,005 m) Mt. Bona has it all: arctic weather, high elevation, and heavy glaciation.   In fact, with its varied climbing, it provides an ideal “classroom” for those aspiring to climb the bigger peaks of Denali and St. Elias.

This is a great mountain for teaching all aspects of glacier mountaineering and is a fantastic ski mountaineering objective.  Participants should be in good physical condition with perhaps a Mt. Rainier climb or a winter ascent of a Colorado "Fourteener" in their resume.

Trip Highlights:

  • Challenging climbing in Alaska’s remote St. Elias Range.
  • Perfect stepping stone to the elite peaks of Denali and Mt. St. Elias.
  • Spectacular setting among the Wrangell and St. Elias Mountains.
  • Hone your climbing skills with our experienced mountaineering guides.
