Made some corrections today, including mountain history and grammatical errors. Will search for first-hand route information.
"Alaska: A Climbing Guide" says this is a Grade II...Grade 3+ for all routes?
Changed to Grade II. Info from NPS. Perhaps Alpine III+?
Would you like to admin this page? I took it over simply because another SPer had made a terrible Blackburn page, so I took some time to make it passable. Never climbed it myself.
just for the list - we've climb there in June 1999 form a BC in the norther glacier bay - Thomas Speck, Thomas Bierweiler, David Bruder. 14 days with a lot of good wether. 5th day we summit Mt Blackburn. (1st flying in, 2nd day "jury peak", 3rd high camp below NW-ridge, 4th day: exploring the ridge up to approx. 13000ft, 5th day summit and back to high camp. After return to the BC an some rest we did the Atna Peak (west) in a 3-day round trip from BC via the W-face/-ridge. Finally we climbed "Rime Peak" (NW-face, the one NE of the E summit, approx. 12700ft, only Speck/Bruder). My first Alaska trip - I never went back: unlikely to have such a good time again :-) David Bruder
