Peaks Above Harding Icefield, Kenai Fjords National Park. Rick Dare, Dallas Virchow, Joe Sears and I spent 13 days on the Harding Icefield in June. We reached the icefield via the Exit Glacier and spent three days hauling loads to Base Camp at a group of peaks near the northwest comer of the icefield. We climbed four peaks there by mixed snow and rock routes: P 5178 (60°08' N, 149°57' W), P 4900 and P 5000 (just east of P 5178) and P 4800 (north of P 5000). We also climbed P 4815, which lies southwest of the Exit Glacier.
