Beyond Little Switzerland: Triple Crown 2021

Here are some research images for our planned 2021 expedition to Triple Crown Peak, Little Switzerland, Alaska Range, June 10-20. They are hard to find, there's been almost no travel in this area, So some of these are captured from Google Earth! But these are enough to get a sense of the scale of Triple Crown and our main SW face objective. Though it's a minor Alaska Range peak, hardly even on the map, a 2900-foot rock face is nothing to sneeze at. Second ascent, anyone?

Here is a file you can load in Google Earth to zoom in on Triple Crown. The start of the proposed SW face route is marked. Hint: select "View...Historical Imagery" to see an older, more accurate image.
