Mount Sanford Attempt. The Alaska Methodist University Mount Sanford Expedition was led by me and composed of James Abbott, Jake Burkett, Franz Froehlicher and Mitch Henning. We spent a week on the mountain in mid-May with camps at 6500, 9500 and 12,000 feet. Wind and snow kept us tent-bound at the last camp for three days. We did reach 14,000 feet but limited time and supplies forced our retreat.
