Mount Steele, East Ridge. In early July, a party of six Canadians, Bruce Fairley, Neil Humphrey, Heidi Piltz, Eric White, Ellen Wood and I, helicoptered to 7500 feet on the Steele Glacier below the east ridge, which we climbed over the next couple of weeks, spending a total of nine nights in snow caves. We hiked out down the Steele Glacier and the Donjek River in seven days.
