P 7205 and P 8205, Wrangell Mountains. Bob Jacobs, Dave Henning, Jack Simmonds and I flew to the Glacier Creek landing area along the Chitistone River on July 1. We established Base Camp at 4400 feet along the Twaharpies Glacier. On July 3, we climbed P 7205 from the northwest. We believe this is the second ascent of this peak, the first being made by the 1984 Polish Expedition. On July 4, we moved our Base Camp up to 5500 feet on a glacier which flows into the Twaharpies Glacier from the southeast. The following day we ascended the glacier to around 7000 feet, from here following the snow ridge which approaches P 8205 from the north, the last 200 feet to the summit being over loose rock. We believe this is the first ascent of this peak.
