Detailed Product Description
Saturday Evening Post, January 27, 1968. 8 pages, color photos. Original article extract with some folds and wear. Very Good.

This article appeared in the Saturday Evening Post prior to Roberts' book Mountain of My Fear being published in 1968. Roberts recounts the harrowing story of a 40-day ordeal on Mt. Huntington in Alaska. This was the first big face to be climbed on an Alaskan peak. It was a remarkable ascent for the time, especially since it was achieved by a relatively unknown, young team of 4 Harvard students - at a terrible price - the life of one man.
