Mount Decoeli is a climb that results in clear unobstructed views of Kluane National Park and the most sought to see Mount Logan. After explaining this hike to many friends, the best summary to describe this climb is a long steady climb of river rocks along the river, where you eventually reach green hilltops that look like their from the Shire. After the hills, you are faced with the vertical climb of fractured rock on the mountain side up to the summit. Think Frodo climbing to the volcano in Mordor from LOTR.
