Crag features

Mount Hunter is the third-highest major peak in the Alaska Range. It is topped by a large, low-angled glacier plateau, connecting the North (Main) Summit and the South Summit (4,257m). Long, corniced ridges extend in various directions; between them are exceptionally steep faces.

Despite being much lower in elevation than Denali, Mount Hunter is a more difficult climb, due to its steep faces and corniced ridges; it also sees far less traffic than its larger neighbour.

Fred Beckey, Heinrich Harrer and Henry Meybohm completed the first ascent in 1954, via the long West Ridge; this was a great accomplishment for the time, and used techniques such as extensive front-pointing which were unusual in the climbing world.
