Add to wish list


Detailed Product Description
Excerpted article on Mount St. Elias from the February 1948 National Geographic. 
Second Ascent and First American Ascent of Mount St. Elias by Maynard M. Miller with 20 pp, 9 illustrations, map and 11 color photographs. Includes the magazine front and back covers. Stapled. Near Fine condition.
 
Mount St Elias is the second highest peak in both the USA and Canada.  
 
Mt. St. Elias was first climbed on July 31, 1897 by an expedition led by famed explorer Prince Luigi Amadeo di Savoia, (who also reconnoitered the current standard route on K2) and including noted mountain photographer Vittorio Sella.

The second ascent was not until 1946, when a group from the Harvard Mountaineering Club including noted mountain historian Dee Molenaar climbed the Southwest Ridge route. The summit party comprised Molenaar, his brother Cornelius, Andrew and Betty Kauffman, Maynard Miller, William Latady, and Benjamin Ferris.
 
(This expedition was somewhat unusual for the era in including a female member.) William Putnam was a member of the expedition but did not make the summit. They used eleven camps, eight of which were on the approach from Icy Bay, and three of which were on the mountain. They were supported by multiple air drops of food.
