Mount Spurr. Doug Van Etten, Skip King and I made a winter ascent of Mount Spurr (3566 meters, 11,070 feet) on March 7. Low clouds forced us to land on a glacier south of Chakachamna Lake, 18 miles from where we had planned to start. The route took us over the heavily corniced rim of Crater Peak (2109 meters, 7575 feet), then onto the plateau below. Crampons were required only near the summit of Mount Spurr where we saw several crevasses still venting sulphurous gas. We also climbed nearby P 10,893 (3320 meters).
