North America, United States, Alaska, P 11,880 and P 11,610, North Fork of Ruth Glacier

P 11,880 and P 11,610, North Fork of Ruth Glacier. Our expedition was made up of Konstantin Ferrari, leader, Gert Judmaier, Hans Penz, Wolfgang Wippler, Helmut Tschaffert and me. After being landed on the Ruth Glacier on June 19, we had very warm weather and soft snow. On June 20 we packed camp to below the icefall on the north fork of the Ruth. On June 21 Penz and Wippler climbed the 2000-foot-high icefall, turned northwest and climbed to the summit of P 11,880. They then traversed to nearby P 11,610. Bad weather prevented any further ascents.
