All Alaskan Neacola Trip
Posted on: November 23, 2011
This is a video of our two week climbing expedition into the remote Neacola Mountains of Alaska. We completed two first ascents during the trip which was plagued with bad weather. Thanks to Aaron Thrasher and Ben Chriswell for the awesome companionship through the storms and climbing.
We didn't get to attempt our primary objective due to punishing weather. However, we completed a new route called Where's the Gas (III 5.8 AI3) on a peak we called "Mystery Mountain" and another called Last Bastion (V 5.10 A1) on a peak we called the "Dogtooth". -Samuel Johnson
