Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do. – Goethe
|North America’s Highest Peaks
11. Alaska’s 16,550-foot Mount Bona
|Bona’s reclusive southeast face
Dick Ellsworth took this photo in June 2003, while we flew in to climb Mount Bona
You can see the dramatic upper south ridge winding toward the gentle upper peak
|Bona hides behind the fore-ranges near the union of the Wrangell Mountains in Alaska and the
Saint Elias Range, which extends east into Canada.
Bona is the fourth highest peak in the United States and the eleventh highest peak in North
America. Bona also has the distinction of being the highest volcano in the United States.
I climbed Bona in June 2003 to complete ascents of North America’s thirteen highest peaks.
