Badham and P 3700. On June 13, Christopher Hammel, Mark Makela and I were flown to 2800 meters on the upper Donjek Glacier between Mounts Badham and Donjek. After an acclimatization ski around Donjek and a two-day storm, we made a quick trip up the north ridge of Badham on June 17. On the descent, we took an alternate route over a small summit (3390 meters, 11,122 feet) northeast of Badham, possibly a first ascent. We were then tent-bound for four days. On June 22, we made the first ascent of P 3700 (12,139 feet), seven miles east of camp at 60°53'07?N, 139°39'06?W. The approach weaved in an easterly direction across three canyons to avoid icefalls, across crevasses and up a broad, short icefield to the summit. We climbed at night for better snow stability. We were flown out on June 26.
