Isanotski Peaks
This peak is #37 in Prominence List for Alaska .Isanotski Peak is the highest point of a multi-summited massif called Isanotski peaks. It is the middle massif on a chain of three glaciated volcanic massifs running east-west on Unimak Island. The highpoint of the Isanotski massif is the second highest peak in the Aleutians Islands after the Shishaldin Volcano located 20 km to the west. Several spectacular pinnacles form an arc along the summit ridge. The summit area is completely covered by glacial ice. Access is by boat from the village of Cold Bay, which is a stop on the Alaska Ferry system. Pull ashore west of Cape Lazaref and hike north to reach the base of this volcano. The south ridge may be a viable summit route, although you may run into technical difficulties, especially near the summit. It's the most challenging Aleutian volcano.

Name Notes: Note we use the singular name for the highest point of the massif.
