Carl Battreall: A Collection of Climbed and Unclimbed Alaska Peaks
Posted on: March 2, 2015
A few weeks ago, photographer and speaker Carl Battreall from Anchorage, Alaska, contacted us to see if we'd be interested in posting images from his Alaska Range collection. To carry on the Unclimbed theme from our latest issue, Alpinist 49, we requested that he also include images from walls that remain unclimbed in his submission. He obliged.
We welcome you to browse through Battreall's images in the following pages. When possible, we added links to notable ascents of the peaks by our contributors. If you'd like to see more work from Battreall, feel free to follow him on Facebook, on Instagram and read his book, The Alaska Range, scheduled to release in spring 2016.

Southwest face of The Angel (9,265'), Revelation Mountains, taken in June 2006. The Angel was first climbed in 1985 by Greg Collins and Tom Walter. The southwest face has not been climbed. The dominate coulior that splits the southwest face was descended in the dark by Clint Helander and Ben Trocki after making the second ascent of the mountain via the South Ridge in 2013.
