With all of the focus on Denali each summer it is easy to lose sight of all of the other great peaks to climb in Alaska. Take for example the Moose’s Tooth, a 3150 meter (10,335 ft) peak located in the Central Alaska Range. While the mountain isn’t particularly high, it is very technical offering some very tough challenges that only experienced mountaineers should consider taking on.
In the video below, Mark and Janelle Smiley take us to the Moose’s Tooth and give us a glimpse of what climbing it is all about. The footage is both spectacular and scary, providing a glimpse of what climbing in Alaska is all about.
