Peril Peak, Western Chugach. Nick Parker and Yoshio Inukai between July 10 and 12 made the second ascent of Peril Peak (7020 feet), which lies up the Eklutna Glacier, by a new and difficult route. They gained the south ridge at its junction with the west spur and then continued up the south ridge. Much of the rock was loose, which made pitoning difficult. They descended the whole of the south ridge, which ended with six successive rappels.
