Detailed Product Description
Denver, 1984, first edition. 136 pp, color photos. Paperback - only edition. Near Fine condition.

A now legendary climb on Mount Hunter with Peter Metcalf, Pete Athans and Glenn Randall. Mount Hunter 14,573 feet, is the tenth highest mountain in the USA. Despite being much lower in elevation than Denali (formerly Mount McKinley), Mount Hunter is a more difficult climb, due to its steep faces and corniced ridges; it also sees far less traffic than its larger neighbor.

The native name for the mountain is Begguya, meaning "Denali's Child".

Fred Beckey, Heinrich Harrer and Henry Meybohm completed the first ascent in 1954, via the long West Ridge; this was a great accomplishment for the time, and used techniques such as extensive front-pointing which were unusual in the climbing world.

Beginning in 1977, with Michael Kennedy and George Lowe's climb of a route on the northwest face of Mount Hunter, this steep rock and ice face has been the scene of many landmark hard climbs.
