North America, United States, Alaska, Delta Range, Item Peak, North Face

Item Peak, North Face. In February, Jed Brown (18 years old) and I (33) ascended a direct line on the north face of Item Peak, to the left of the route I did in 2000. Jed and I found snow up to 65° and avoided all rock bands by stepping left around them. We only roped up for the summit cornice.
