Mount Williwaw, partially tucked from view behind closer peaks, looks unremarkable from Anchorage. Yet it’s the highest of the mountains rising behind the city, a massive pyramid whose true dominance over the landscape is best measured from its summit. This route is not easy, involving a long approach and the negotiation of a steep gully. It can be climbed from Glen Alps in a long day or as a challenging side trip for backpackers camped at the Williwaw Lakes.
