Foraker, 1975. In late June, 1975 Rob Muir, leader, Rob Dellinger, Jim Hoagland, Steve West, Ken Cook, Larry Dunmire, Greg Sapp and I were flown to the southwest fork of the Kahiltna Glacier. From the southern cirque we planned to ferry our equipment through the south- ridge col and climb the large icefall to the foot of the 8000-foot south face. Due to hazardous conditions in the icefall and nearby avalanches, we turned our attention eastward to the southeast ridge, first climbed in 1963. We placed camps at 8500, 9500, 11,500 and 13,000 feet. On July 10, Dellinger and Cook reached the summit. Muir and Sapp climbed to the top on July 14.
