Details

Little Switzerland is more popular for long, moderate rock and alpine climbing in May and June.  There are many opportunities for descents from mild to wild.    Views of Mt. Foraker and myriad 10,000 to 12,000 ft jagged peaks never get old.  Crevasse danger is real and one should be familiar with crevasse rescue here.

How to Get There

You will need to take a plane to get to the Pika glacier- Talkeetna Air Taxi is the choice of most climbers.
