South Taku Tower, East Face. Daniel Reid and others made the first ascent of the difficult east face of South Taku Tower during the summer, placing no bolts and finding an F8, A4 standard. For the Juneau Icefield, the weather was quite good and allowed them to make the long trek across the icefield and an ascent of the Devil’s Paw. We hope to have a fuller account in the A.A.J., 1975.
