Past junk ice and a daunting offwidth, Ben Gilmore and Kevin Mahoney found ?the most amazing stretch of rock and ice either of [them] had ever climbed,? during their first ascent of Arctic Rage (VI WI6+R A2, 4,500′), a new route on the east face of The Mooses Tooth (10,355′), March 31?April 3, 2004. Their climb, funded by the Mugs Stumps Award, received a nomination for the 2005 Piolet d?Or. A full account of the expedition appears in Issue 8.
