Yedhe Mountain, Northern Canadian Rockies. In early August Barbara Pasenow-Zimmermann and I went in five days from Mile 442 (Peterson Creek) on the Alaska Highway to the Yedhe Lakes. On August 13 we made the first ascent of Yedhe Mountain (c. 8920 feet). We climbed the southwest ridge (5.3 to 5.7). On the summit we decided to traverse the mountain. We followed the north ridge to 8200 feet and from there the west ridge until we found a place to bivouac. In the night it began to snow. The next morning we descended the west ridge, often having to abseil over steep steps.
