Mount Tyr, East Peak Cumberland Peninsula. On August 5, Mary Little, John Shapiro, Mona Devlin and I climbed the east peak of Mount Tyr (1310 meters or 4298 feet). Scrambling up the side of a snow gully, our route eventually brought us out on a buttress that led to the snow- covered summit. An approaching snowstorm cut short our summit ram-blings. The round trip took nine hours.
