P 7317 and P 6188, Thompson Ridge Area, Chugach Mountains. A joint trip by Bob Jacobs of the St. Elias Alpine Guides and Matt Culberson of the American Alpine Institute made two first ascents in June. The group of ten made Base Camp on the south side of Granite Creek and spent eight days in the region. They climbed P 7317 and P 6188, which lie on the north side of the Bagley Icefield. This is just east of the mountains climbed in 1986 by the joint Polish-St. Elias Alpine Guides expedition.
