Mt. Blackburn is a spectacular climb. After staring at it from the Kennicott Valley for so many years, to stand on top of it was an incredible experience. Blackburn has everything you could ask for in a climb. Altitude, route-finding through crazy seracs, cool ridge climbing, steep snow, and powder turns. I could sit and stare out at the view of the Wrangell Mountains from the northwest ridge all day long. That’s saying a lot from a guy who has a hard time sitting still!
