Fairweather's west ridge from 9000 feet in 1984. The route followed the ridge and went to the right of the rock cleaver, above which we put our high camp. The high point on the ridge is the West Shoulder. The main summit of Fairweather is the snow dome behind.
Looking down Fairweather's west ridge from about 10,000 feet. The rock section in the middle distance was passed via the narrow snow slopes on its left side. The last vertical rock bit was climbed using fixed ropes. Our 9000-foot camp was on the snow dome behind the rock.
The north ridge of Mt. Hayes from about 9800 feet in 1982. We camped in the col below and followed the ridge until where it is crossed by shadow at what looks to be about half way up. Our route then cut out onto the face to the right and went more or less directly up through the upside down V-shaped crevasse and onto the ridge. The high point is the North Shoulder which has an elevation of about 12,700 feet.
Mt. Foraker in 1977 from near Perkypile. Our followed the sunny ridge that ascends from left to right below the big west face of Foraker toward the pointy Whale's Tail. Our high camp was in the saddle between the triangular peak above the west face and the Whale's Tail. Foraker's summit is behind the triangular peak.
View up the west ridge from 13,000 feet in 1977. We climbed up to the level section of ridge that appears to be about half way up (but is much less). That is where our second rope team fell, going 500 feet down the face on the right and ending up in the last crevasse just above a several thousand foot rock face.
Valhalla from the ridge to Mt. Fafnir (10,620 ft) in 1983. Mt. Gilbert Lewis (12,200 ft) is on the left edge of the photo. The original ascent route of Valhalla was up the ridge in the col, over the lower summit. Our Valhalla route followed the ridge coming from the right.
Looking down the south face of Icefall Peak from shortly below the summit in 1976. Our camp is the dot near the tip of the shadow on the right-hand edge of the photo. A fairly straight-forward steep snow climb in the fall, winter and spring. In the summer, there rock and ice to contend with.
The Revelation Mountains looking down Revelations Glacier from near its head. Mt. Hesperus is the sharp peak in the distance on the left. Most of the peaks in the view are granitic on this side but metamorphic rock on the other. The Apocalypse (9,345 feet) is the high peak on at the bend of the glacier
Denali from the Muldrow Glacier in 1975. The Lower Icefall is in the shadowed area above camp and the Great Icefall is in the shadowed area beyond. Between is the Hill of Cracks. Denali's north summit is the dominant peak with the main south summit a snow dome to the left.
We were forced to camp in this crevasse at Browne Tower by a very strong windstorm and a very hard and icy surface in April 1975. We stayed here for three days. The crevasse less than 3-feet wide at the surface.
