Wolverine Circumnavigation

 

Moderate: Wolverine Circumnavigation


185 circling to land at wolverine airstrip for backcountry backpacking pickup or dropoff.jpg
 

A great variation that is surprisingly seldom done. Instead of base-camping at Wolverine, try this interesting circumnavigation of the mesa. See this interesting feature from every angle as you travel all the way around it. You’ll be surprised how different it looks on the back side. The route takes you through quite a variety of terrain and keeps you up in the high country for the whole trip. 

Terrain: Steep traverses and moraine crossings. 

USGS maps: McCarthy C4 

Duration: 3-4 days 

Length: 11 miles 

$470 per person, unguided.
