Mountaineering in Alaska….All Summer Long

Mt. Drum, an extinct volcano, rises 12,010 feet (3,660 m) from the tundra landing strip. Though Drum is the smallest of the Wrangell Mountains, its aesthetic shape and full climbing experience make it a unique peak.  The route follows the airy and steep south-west ridge; offering stunning views and secure climbing. Steep snow and scree is encountered along with several false summits before the altimeter reads 12,010 feet.  From the summit, Mt. Blackburn, Mt. Sanford, and Mt. Wrangell provide a spectacular backdrop.

 Trip Highlights:

  • Experience the challenges and rewards of mountaineering in Alaska
  • An attainable peak for intermediates and strong novices.
  • Spectacular setting among the high peaks of the Wrangell Mountains.
  • Hone your skills with professional Alaska mountaineering guides.
