Ptarmigan Peak just outside Anchorage Alaska hosts some of the finest local alpine cragging for us Anchorage climbers. To date the longest technical push on the peak is a linkup a partner and I did in 2011 - 'The Frombe Linkup' M7 C1 (or M8/9) AK3 1400' (roped climbing) 2011 - 17hr door to door - M7, M7, M6, M7 C1 (M8/9), 2 traverse pitches, M5, M6 (ice), M4/5, M4/5, upper snow field to West summit. The route names are fairly R rated in nature but the climbing is usually safe with adequate protection on solid rock and moss, nearly all routes are naturally protected. Most of the routes are 2 or 3 pitches max and weigh in around M6-M8+. There’s probably 10-12 routes total, I’ve never counted… The route shown here is an unnamed M6 dihedral that Carl Tobin and friends pioneered a while back. The ledge we start the pitch from is actually two pitches up a trade route M7, thus making what’s seen here the 3rd pitch. From this ledge there are actually 4 excellent pitches to choose from, this is just one of them. Anyhow, I edited down the video the best I could, trying not to miss too much… But probably got too much… Well, I hope you the viewer enjoy the windy adventure as much as partner and I did. Cheers!
