Icefall Peak, Alaska Range. In March and April, Roman Motyha, Larry Reynolds and Bjarne Holm made a new route on Icefall Peak. The route from the Gulkana Glacier had been tried several times before, but all previous parties had been turned back by a very large crevasse. Because it was so early in the season, they had no trouble in crossing it and were able to climb the 50° slope to the summit. The party was delayed a little by the cornice but surmounted it.
