P 8300, Buckskin Glacier, Alaska Range. From March 25 to April 9, Rick Erst, George Menard, Ted Moore, Pete Robinson and I skied from road to road up the Ruth Glacier and down the Buckskin Glacier, crossing via 7950-foot “Window Pass” to the northwest fork of the Buckskin and making the first ascent of 8300-foot “Mooseskin Mountain,” 1.65 miles north-northwest of the Moose’s Tooth via the west ridge. John Metzger was with us on the Ruth and flew out from Don Sheldon’s blown- over Mountain House, which we spent three days righting.
