Description:

Cross Phelan Creek. Hike up Gulkana Glacier Valley, and head left/west up "dead finger" glacier (prior to 1st ice fall on main glacier) to area below Institute Peak; includes movement on snow-covered glacier. Climb west face up mostly moderate snow/ice to the rock, then scramble to summit.

Descent Options:

Retrace route. Could explore ridges either to NE or SE of route. Can also head down main glacier toward top of Gabriel Ice Fall and maybe avoid creek crossing; although involves more snow-covered and heavily crevassed glacier travel.
