Mount Munday, North Face. After a week climbing Waddington and satellite peaks with the Everett Mountaineers, Bob Kandiko and I felt the provocative 2300-foot north face of Mount Munday should wait no longer. On August 4, after a bivouac in Bravo Cirque, we threaded about the face’s crevassed apron as the stars faded and the Claw Peaks were silhouetted against the orange horizon. Two pitches crossing schrunds in dim light were the only difficult climbing. We fourth-classed the 50° to 55° soft ice in troughs and cork névé on flutings to the ridge crest four hours after crossing the schrunds.
