About Panorama Peak ICE:

There are several two or three pitch alpine ice climbs on this mountain that rises about 3,500 feet above the Parks Highway on the east side. None of the west facing routes reach the summit, but the south face has some enjoyable and usually stable snow gullies that reach the summit ridge. The summit itself is an exposed boulder that few have actually stood on. The ice is usually best in the early season, October through January seem to be the best months. It is hard to find good protection, rock gear (to include pins) is highly recommended. Most of the descents are by walking or downclimbing some of the neighboring gullies.
Nearest town or city: Cantwell
Directions: The climbs can be approached from the Parks Highway about 130 miles south of Fairbanks, between Mile 217 and Mile 219. There are two paved pullouts, one around Mile 219 (best one for the ice routes) and the other at 216.7 (best for the summit snow climbs).
