Deborah, West Face. Andy Reynolds, Keith Eckelmeyer and I made the third ascent of the west face of Deborah. Although it was a great climb, nothing really noteworthy took place. We repeated the straightforward west-face route, the most direct and easiest way to climb Deborah. We flew to the upper Yanert Glacier in early April and spent two days getting through icefalls, fixed 500 feet of line on the face and waited a day for weather. We then climbed the face in an 18-hour round-trip push from our 9000-foot camp. We skied down the Yanert to the Parks Highway.
