Peaks in the Wrangell Range. Don Brooks, leader, James Meigs, assistant leader, Stu Brody, Art Kampen, Tom Miller and Dave Shrimpton abandoned their original objective, the northeast ridge of Blackburn, after seeing the route from the summit of Rime Peak. They descended and climbed P 10,060 via an icefall on the southwest side. Brody, Meigs and Miller then climbed P 10,060 by its northwest ridge while Brooks, Kampen and Shrimpton climbed the southwest ridge of Paraka Peak. Three flew out and Brooks, Kampen and Meigs hiked out via the Nabesna Glacier.
