Mount Hunter, Moonflower Buttress. It was reported that in 1995, Alex Lowe and Conrad Anker spent 36 hours camp-to-camp on the Moonflower Buttress, reaching a point below the “Come Again” exit, which is approximately five pitches below the Stump-Aubrey 1981 high point. Their effort represents amazing proficiency on a route that, at Alaskan Grade 6 ice/mixed 95° 5.8 A3, is still considered an Alaskan testpiece 16 years after it was established. (Climbing 167)
