Moose’s Tooth, Mount Huntington, and Mount Barrille. An expedition, led by Fred Beckey, whose members included John Rupley, Herb Staley, and others, was landed by the pilot Don Sheldon on the southeastern side of Mount McKinley at the foot of Mount Huntington (12,240 feet). Though they reached the crest of the main ridge, they could not complete the ascent. They also failed to ascend the spectacular Moose’s Tooth (10,335 feet) but made the second ascent of Mount Barrille (7650 feet).
