Hunter Creek Peaks, Chugach Mountains. On June 30, Mikki Hand, Jonathan Rose and I flew to 3800 feet on the seldom-visited east fork of the Hunter Creek Glacier. During the next three days, we climbed the four highest peaks in the area: Troublesome Peak (7465 feet) via the north ridge, Devils Club Peak (7240 feet) via the west ridge, Hunter’s Peak (7549 feet) via the south ridge and Mountaineer’s Peak (7265 feet) via the south ridge. The first two were third ascents and the last two were fourth ascents.
