Lamaire Channel, Various Ascents. Greg Landreth and Keri Pashuk, with their boat Northanger, were active again in the Antarctic Peninsula, making ascents of a number of peaks with their climbing guests Rich Prohaska and Jia Condon. In late January, Landreth, Prohaska and Condon climbed Whozuna? (V 5.9, 18 pitches) in a 40-hour push on P. 1050m in the Wall Range. Rich Prohaska and Jia Condon then climbed Unazwhat? (V 5.9 mixed A2) via the east buttress to the east summit of the Cape Renard Tower (a.k.a. Una’s Tits, 747m) from February 1-4. An attempt of Wandel Peak (c.950m) on Booth Island was made via the north ridge in early February by all members of the group. A full account of their climbs appears earlier in this journal.
