North America, United States, Alaska, Denali National Park, Mt. Hiunter, Moonflowewr Buttress, fast Ascent

Mt. Hunter, Moonflower Buttress, fast ascent. From May 16 to 19 Doug Chabot and I climbed The Moonflower Buttress, to the summit, in a record “fast and heavy” 83-hour round trip. Our strategy included jugging difficult pitches and hauling, among other things, our garage-sale tent, which we couldn’t set up on two of the three nights. We both agreed the route lived up to its reputation as The Nose of ice climbing.
