4 out of 5 stars Mold Route Traverse

We did the Muldrow as part of a range traverse from kantishna to talkeetna, up the muldrow, down the Kahiltna, and across the pika glacier to the granite glacier and then to the tokositna glacier, on foot, ski, and raft. The muldrow is technically easy, but you ain't gonna get heli-flighted out of there if you stub your toe and cry wahh-wahh, like you can on the wet butt route. So pay attention, pay yer dues, and go see the best side of the range. Helpful hint: there's a good campsite at 16,000 or so, over on the right side of the harper glacier, in a little safe spot right up against the base of the north peak. Kind of sheltered, as sheltered as anything up there can be, anyway. PS: the fear mongering about the browne tower camp is silly. All small camps on denali have sanitation issues...including the 17,2 camp on mthe wett butt route. Your job is to be smart enough to bring some Iodine and treat your water as you melt it.
