I've climbed it from Prospect Heights various times and enjoy it as a mega tough mountain run. I also have summited the peak from the Williwaw Lakes and via the long ridgeline from Mt. Elliott. My favorite time was a cold New Year's Day. Brian Griggs and I started under a bright moon (no headlamp needed) at 3am.

Had a great run with some fit AK women from Prospect Heights TH. Moose and Dall sheep rounded out the experience.

Date Climbed: Mar 30, 2009
Started from Prospect hieghts and made the trek via the traditional route. Almost called the trip off because of a rainstorm moving in, but I was glad I didn't because I was rewarded with one of my favorite views ever one I reached the top. Saw Anchorage behind me covered with rainclouds while the setting sun burned an orange glow right through the rain. Amazing. Been up two or three times since and enjoyed it every time.

Nice day to be out here, no clouds in the sky whatsoever. The bugs, on the other hand....

Aaarwhooooo!
A great day of chasing little rodents.
Seems like everything is big in Alaska except the marmots.
I don't get it.

A nice outing, day-hike. Good to get out again and stretch the legs after Denali. Went up with Haliku and others.

With extra time in Anchorage after our Denali success we killed half a day doing a little hiking. A very nice outing on a sunny day.

tootufftony1975Route: Prospect Heights-Up the valley-Up to the ridgeline after Rusty Point  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 17, 2007

tootufftony1975

I live up on Nearpoint, and my friend Seth that took me grew up in these mountains, so he knew about a trail that connected into the Prospect Heights Trail. There was quite a bit of snow, but it had been pretty cold for most of this winter at that point, so it was pretty packed and windblown into the valley. Once we got just passed Rusty Point in the valley, we headed up to the ridgeline. It was about 6-7 degrees in the valley, then once we got on that straight shot that connects to the ridge that Wolverine is in, the temps dropped to about 4-5 degrees. The day was awesome, though. Clear and sunny, and we headed back just in time to catch the sunset over the inlet. Great hike. We plan on doing Wiliwaw Peak in May, and we are going to head to Wolverine then straight back to Wiliwaw.

Date Climbed: Sep 21, 2007

Started out at 7am. Summited 3.5 hours later. Great climb, nothing technical. Freeze line was at 4,000ft so the last 500ft was in light snow. Vis was terrible for looking around at the surrounding peaks but the beauty of nothing but rock and ice was fantastic. Plenty of Moose and a old plane wreck to look at.

Beautiful day in the mountains..... first Chugach summit besides Flattop....felt good to rise up out of Anchorage and gain some elevation! I was alone for the whole day until a 59 year old man came chugging up to the summit at a slow jog...he stopped his watch at 70 minutes coming up.... I on the other hand had taken something like 2 1/2 hours coming up at (what I thought) was a brisk hiking pace.....clearly he'd been training harden then I... It's always fun to meet these kind of people in the mountains. For me they serve as inspiration and an example of what I'm capable of in the mountains at my young age of twenty.... After he left the summit, I gave him 15 min.., and started jogging down myself. Monkey see, monkey do.....

First mountain I climbed with my sister Dianna and her boyfriend Mike. Encountered a bear on the way back! We scared it off though. Great time!

First hiked this peak in 1977 and again with the Service High School cross-country running team in 1983. I also climbed this peak with Mark Ando in May 1987 and with Jennifer Summers in the 1990s. Led a MCA trip to the summit on May 11, 2009.



Wolverine Peak was the first peak I climbed on my own.
