About Byron Peak:

This glaciated peak at Portage has all the thrills of bigger Alaska Range peaks. Climbing up the heavily crevassed left side requires expert glacier travel skills and a bit of insanity. A superb route takes the line straight up the center of the peak, a long pitch of 5.6 rock to 50 degree glacier ice to the schrund. Cross the schrund (very difficult) and climb the 70-degree ice on the steep face under the summit.
