“A long, steep scree scramble to a peak with a top of the world experience.”— Tim W
Essentially, from the start of the trail in Ram Valley, follow the singletrack to the glacier at the end of the valley, and then climb up scree to the north (your left-hand side). Continue up the peak at your leisure. Though it is not at all technical, it is a very strenuous run, and having some endurance is a must. Keep hydrated!
From the summit, one can see Eagle River, Anchorage, Mt. Marcus Baker (the tallest peak in the Chugach Range). Overall, this run makes a very long and enduring day trip for a well-worth-it peak experience!
