PhotoDescr: This was our groups fly in day to the Walsh col below Mt Steele in the St Elias Range of the Yukon. This photo was taken enroute from Andy Williams Helio Courier out of Silver City on Kluane Lake. Mount Kennedy is one of the easiest higher peaks in the St Elias via its west ridge. Its north ridge, however, is one of the most difficult climbs, with a grade which consistently exceeds 60 degrees and rises about 6000 feet above the Kennedy Glacier. Mount Alverstone and Hubbard also have easy routes via the Cathedral Glacier (Alaska Grade 1).
