North America, United States, Alaska, Mount Hunter

Mount Hunter. Arturo and Guido Giovanoli, Leo Hartmann, Jon Rudolf Bezzola and I tried to climb the north face of Mount Hunter, but we got hit by an avalanche at 9000 feet and so we gave it up. After climbing Mount Crosson by the east ridge on May 15, we returned to Hunter and climbed it by the west ridge. We placed Camp I at 10,000 feet. We fixed 3000 feet of rope because of poor snow conditions. On May 26 we all got to the summit after 11½ hours of climbing.
