Juneau Icefield. The Juneau Icefield Research Program carried out its 24th year of field research in alpine and arctic geology in the Northern Boundary Range. In late July Dr. Wayne M. Smith, Harte Bressler, Louis Miller and John Schutt made the second ascent of Mount Bressler (c. 8000 feet). The first ascent of Gorgon Spire (c. 7200 feet), the dominant peak at the head of the unnamed southeast tributary to the Gilkey Glacier, was made by Dr. Alfred Pichak, William Lokey and Andy Miller.
