“Trident Peak”, Kenai. After packing up Falls Creek late the previous day, Chuck McLaughlin and I made the first ascent on July 1 of this massive, glacier-hung, gendarme-studded mountain, which lies in the Snow River-Paradise Lake area five miles east of Ptarmigan Lake. We climbed its northeast glacier and short north face to the junction of the east and south ridges, thence north along the ridge to the central and highest of the three gendarmes competing for the summit.
