Mt. Hunter, Mini-Moonflower. In May two new routes were established on Mt. Hunter’s north buttress, which has become known as the Mini-Moonflower. This spur peak is actually a facet of the northeast ridge, and previous ascensionists (1999 AAJ, p. 252) have also called it the northeast buttress of Mt. Hunter. The pyramid-shaped subpeak is northeast of Hunter’s north buttress, just past the large, obvious icefall. New routes were established in 2001 by Kenton Cool and Ian Parnell, and by Stephen Koch and Marko Prezlj. Accounts from each party appear earlier in this journal.
