University Peak (14,470'), southwest spur. Kevin Ditzler and John Kelley climbed this 8,500' route in seven days, summiting on April 17. They descended the north ridge to Beaver Basin, where they waited six days for a pickup with almost no food or fuel. See Ditzler’s article earlier in the Journal.
