Schwanda Peak and P 8130, Brooks Range. I led a trip up the Jago River and over a 7000-foot pass near the Continental Divide to the Hulahula River. On the way Vess Irvine, Ken Jonaitis, Rick Mohun and I climbed Schwanda Peak in a 17-hour day on August 14. Our route went up the north (right) fork of the Hubley Glacier, up 800 feet of firm 45% snow to the col between Schwanda and Mount Hubley and up loose talus to the 8500-foot summit. On August 24 Irvine and I climbed P 8130, which lies some 12 miles south of Hubley and four miles southeast of the pass.
