Ascent Trip Report

I had a overnight layover in Anchorage and was able to squeeze in this hike. We scrambled straight up the rocks toward the flag and then descended on a walkable path that we found east of the true summit. The views were spectacular, and even though the peak is "unranked," I'm glad to have an Alaska mountain on my resume.
