North America, United States, Alaska, Foraker Attempt

Foraker Attempt. After trying for a week to run and hide from avalanches in the icefall leading to the northeast ridge of Mount Foraker, Peggy Scott (now my wife) and I finally decided to climb the ridge to the right of the icefall but ran out of time at about 8500 feet.
