P 7542, Talkeetna Mountains. On June 29 Dick Nystrom and I headed north out of Palmer and parked our car where we crossed Granite Creek. After two days and 12 miles we made our Base Camp. On July 1 our prearranged airdrop arrived. After four days of resting and short climbs, on July 6, we headed for two days up Granite Creek towards unclimbed P 7542 (in the northwest corner of Anchorage D-5 quadrangle). We bivouacked on a saddle to the southeast of P 7542 and on July 8 we started for the top. After three steep snow traverses we were on rock. We made 14 pitches (5.0 to 5.6) on the south ridge. We have proposed the name of Andromeda to the authorities.
