Mt. Sanford was first climbed by Terris Moore, who was not only a notable mountaineer with many first ascents in the Wrangells, but also the second president of the University of Alaska. He and his climbing partner, Bradford Washburn, climbed Sanford via the North Ramp route up the Sheep Glacier in July of 1938. This is still the most commonly used route to the summit.

have everything you need for your adventure. Plan your travel wardrobe around informal and comfortable clothing.

The weather in Alaska is quite variable and changes quickly. High quality waterproof gear is worth the investment, especially for the summer months. Always choose wool or synthetics over cotton; cotton does not easily dry and once wet has no insulation. The key to success: bring lots of layers and always be prepared! You’ll find that when your gear and attitude are good, the weather is always good too!
