Mount Sanford, Attempt on South Ridge. On June 10 Milt Johnson, Dave Shaw, Don Stockard and I were flown to the saddle south of Mount Sanford. While relaying supplies to the base of the ridge at 14,000 feet, Milt aggravated an old knee injury and remained at 10,000 feet. The rest reached the ridge, but turned back after several days of continuous wet snowfall.
