Mt. Fairweather Epic

In May, Steve Ogle, Dean Wagner and I spent two weather bound weeks, with – 40 C temps and ferocious winds,¬†waiting for a window to ascend Mt. Fairweather, the remote peak straddling the Alaska-BC border. At 15,300 feet it’s the highest point in BC. Finally on May 17, a high pressure settled in, temperatures rose to a balmy – 20 C and winds calmed allowing us to make a wonderful nine-hour ascent of this gorgeous dome of ice that towers above Glacier Bay and the Gulf of Alaska. Read about this adventure in an upcoming issue of British Columbia Magazine.
