In May 2015, Steven Kovalenko and Maury Perrault climbed a 1,400m mixed line up the northwest face of Hungabee Mountain (3,490m) in a 30-hour round trip from Lake O’Hara (16 hours up, 14 hours down). Mordor (V 5.6 WI4 M4) topped out on the north ridge. Perrault and Maarten van Haeren had attempted the same line in 2014.
