North America, Canada, Canadian Arctic, Killabuk, Solo, Weasel Valley, Baffin Island

Killabuk, Solo, Weasel Valley, Baffin Island. Italian climber Franco Perlotto made a solo ascent of the east face of Killabuk, a route first climbed by Doug Scott, Dennis Hennek and three others in 1971. The peak lies near the head of the Weasel Valley. He found the lower slopes comparatively easy but had steep or vertical sections of 5.8 and A2 near the top. He made the climb on August 14. As a warm-up, Perlotto climbed solo a new route on the west face of a tower that projects from Ulu Peak (5.9, Al).
