Mt Frances, East Ridge

Access Couloir. Fun climbing in good snow.
Quick break. Nearing the ridge.

Denali south face and East Kahiltna Peak. The south ridge of East Kahiltna (descending left to right to join glacier) looks like a classic Alaskan ridge...next time perhaps?

Stopping to take a photo - a good excuse for a breather on our first acclimatisation peak.

Anywhere else this would be a classic moderate alpine route, up here, it's one amongst many! Descending from the summit as snow conditions deteriorate in the warmth of the afternoon.

Glad of skis on the way home in soft snow.
