Video/Photos from Kuskulana Glacier, Blackburn, Wrangell Mtns, Alaska

Josh Mumm, Eben Sargent, John Sykes and I hoped to find a skiable route up the south side of Mt. Blackburn (16390 ft., Wrangell Mountains, Alaska) for a one-week road-to-road climb. Shallow snow and huge cracks prevented us from getting up Blackburn, but the landscape, sunset, and northern lights at the Kuskulana-Kennicott pass (10,000 ft.) were spectacular. There is a cool northern lights timelapse ~3 minutes into the video. We even had a view of Mt. Logan, which we hope to be on, or at least near, in May.

I hope you are all having a great spring!

    Sweet. Video and a great report. I haven’t done to many long trips this year. Hard to make the time. A couple of us are very interested on the winter ski classic. Not this year….. Possibly next. Year.
