Description

The descent of Albright Peak is clear cut and obvious. It's a big face and you must be confident in your avalanche mitigation before tackling this monster. There is opportunity aplenty to dig pits on the uptrack and to evaluate the snowpack, so make use of them.

Take in the surroundings while you strap in and then get ready for an exhilarating descent that is well worth the slog uphill.
