The south side of Mt. St. Elias, located on the border of Alaska and Yukon Territory, has the longest vertical ski run in the world. From the ocean this mountain shoots up to 18,008'. Janelle Smiley, Jed Porter, and myself started from the ocean, climbed to the top, and skied about 13,000' of Harvard Route.

Mark Smiley and Janelle Smiley tackle a modern classic. Climbing Tenya Peak, Matthes Crest and Cathedral Peak in a day. Covering this much rock and terrain in a short amount of time requires moving fast with minimal gear. 8 hours after starting, the mission was complete. Give it a try!
Janelle and I climbed the North Face of Mt Edith Cavell Oct 2015. This was Classic Climb #47 for us. It was a full-on alpine adventure with lots of snow on the face. Check out the trip report: http://goo.gl/LLnTNe
