Your Chance To Edit

Mt. Barrill is the northern most peak on the west side of the Ruth Gorge. It's about 2,332' tall from the glacier and hosts and number of routes, most of which are on the impressively steep east side. The Ruth Glacier is the second-largest glacier in the Alaska Range.

Description Edit

The most popular and easiest route to the summit is the Japanese Couloir but beware of poor snow conditions if the temperatures have been warm. The Cobra Pillar is becoming a popular rock climbing objective thanks to the release of the new Alaska Supertopo guide, but don't expect this route to go down easy. The success rate on this route is still very low and most parties will take several days to climb it unless they are very strong.

Getting there Edit

At 35 miles long it is second only to the Kahiltna.

Red Tape Edit

Mountaineers attempting a climb of Barille must register with the Walter Harper Talkeetna Ranger Station at least 60 days prior to their start date. The 60-day pre-registration regulation allows mountaineering rangers to have direct contact with climbers before they arrive in Talkeetna (conditions applied). You can fill application form and pay fee online by credit card via of Denali National Park and Preserve official web-site.
