"Did this along with South Suicide Peak. Sunny and beautiful day. The summit block in this has a class 3 section that may be intimidating for newer climbers. An enjoyable and beautiful approach the whole way." - North Suicide Peak, Irrationalist, Jul 1, 2018
"Long uphill climb well over 13 miles round trip. Beautiful. day, extremely steep the entire trip, my hiking partner stopped when we hit the ridgeline to Suicide. Definitely bring bear bells, spray and/or some type of personal protection to use against Bears. Hike done in early August. The trail starts at The Falls Creek trailhead, about 10-15 miles out of Anchorage. The trail is well used and the first half is within trees and scrub growth. Once out of the trees, the undergrowth covers most of the trail, making it hard to see what you're doing. Many times there are rocks in the trail whi" - South Suicide Peak, AlaskaHiker, Aug 6, 2017
"Headed up Sunday morning. Made good time through the low growth. No breeze made the first few miles humid. Low clouds hung around the peak. By the time we arrived you could not see past 60 feet. Too bad, the views from there are truly worth the climb." - Wolverine Peak, AlaskaHiker, Jul 30, 2017
"We went along the Rabbit creek trail to the saddle between Flaketop and Ptarmingan. We climbed up the saddle and along the ridge line to the summit. Then down the scree field behind Ptarmingan back to the Rabbit creek trail and back out." - Ptarmigan Peak, AlaskaHiker, Oct 9, 2016
"Was working as a fisheries biologist in alaska for 6 months, so why not hike a mountain in my free time! Was very out of shape so I was not ready. Almost turned around on my way up, but would have never forgiven myself, so i pushed. Camped out on the side of the mountain overlooking Anchorage that night. One of the best hikes Ive ever made.
