2011 Mountaineering Patrol

May 14, 2011 Posted by: Evan Olson

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.

    Hum, maybe they are not back yet from the 2011 patrol as I don't see any follow up posts?
