Eeffoc Java Peak and other summits.
Alaska, Talkeetna Mountains
In May, James Kesterson, Paul Muscat, Joe Stock, and Glenn Wilson made first recorded ascents of a few snowy 7,000-8,000’ peaks from the Sheep River Glacier in the Talkeetna Mountains. They landed on the glacier southwest of Point 7,820’, 1.25 miles south of Chickaloon Pass, and set up a base camp at ca 6,850’, from where they made all of their climbs. Java Peak (8,000’) and White Knight Peak (8,450’, first climbed in 1995) are probably the most notable, and the area seems to offer good mountaineering and ski-mountaineering potential.
