“A stunning approach takes you across glaciers, along ridge-lines and up a gorgeous Alaskan summit.”— James Smith
Begin on the College Glacier Access route. From the flats of the glacier, head east and uphill toward a prominent notch in the ridge-line. Low angle slopes in this area provide good access even during unstable snow conditions.
Once you've gained the ridge, turn north toward the prominent massif of Peak 8100. You'll have low-angle terrain to the west that leads back the the College Glacier, or steeper, rockier terrain to the east that leads to "No Name" Glacier. Stay on the ridge and head toward the obvious south ridge of 8100. The ridge quickly steepens as you head up the flanks of the mountain. This is a full on mountaineering line at this point and appropriate gear and knowledge is paramount. This ridge and summit can also be heavily corniced: Watch out!
