Mount Francis is right near Valdez. You can get a helicopter flight if you want to take a run on it, or you can hop in a car drive 10 mins from downtown and start hiking.
2.5 mi. SW of Washbowl Basin, 5 mi. SE of Valdez, Chugach Mts.
If you're looking to ski it Dean Cummings did a first descent on the mountain and has some words to say on it here.
Named in 1898 by Captain W. R. Abercrombie, USA.
