Rangers climbing in the Granite Range

The backcountry rangers are out on the first mountaineering patrol of the season.  Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve has incredible opportunities for climbing and mountaineering on some of the most remote mountains anywhere.  The park has sixteen of the twenty tallest peaks in Alaska including 18,008 ft tall Mt St. Elias. 
We'll put up a new post as soon as we get back in a couple weeks.
