Alaska Alpine Club. In April a six-man party reached the summit of Mount Silvertip (9500 feet) at the eastern end of the Alaska Range after climbing a 100-foot pinnacle of rime ice at the top. We believe that this was the second complete ascent of the peak. In May a week-end trip was made to the Black Rapids area in 30-below weather. In June a three-man party attempted unclimbed Mount Kimball in the Alaska Range, but failed to find a route to the summit. In August a group of four made the first ascent of Redoubt Volcano (10,197 feet) in the Chigmit Mountains of the Aleutian Range. A work party has repaired the suspension cable crossing of the Delta River near Black Rapids Glacier, and a trip to Poop Out Peak in the same area was scheduled for October.

Officers for the year were Gene Westcott, president; Charles Deehr, secretary-treasurer, and Neil Davis, senior advisor.

Eugene M. Westcott, President
