Mount Pullen (Boundary Peak 104), Meade Glacier, British Columbia- Alaskan Frontier. After being landed by plane on a tributary of the Meade Glacier near the international boundary, our party of six moved 2½ miles southwest to establish Base Camp two miles east of Mount Pullen. We had set our hearts on this mountain chiefly because it was unclimbed in the string of climbed peaks: Boundary Peaks 101, 102 (Poletica), 103, and 105 (Canning). We believe that Pullen (6816 feet) has been named for “Ma” Pullen of Skagway, of gold-rush fame. On May 24 our whole party, Bob Mooers, Ted Lewis, Joe Logan, Mike Lorton, Tom Harman and I, made its first ascent, climbing it from the southeast side. On May 26 from Base Camp Mooers, Logan, Harman and I climbed P 6100, which lies 5 miles southeast of Pullen and 2½ miles northeast of Boundary Peak 103. Back at the Landing Strip Camp Logan, Lorton and I on May 28 climbed P6200, 5 miles east of Pullen. The next day, May 29, Mooers, Lorton, Logan, Lewis and I climbed P6600, 5½ miles northeast of Pullen, 5 miles east of Canning. Though not difficult, all were first ascents. We were on the glacier 12 days.
