Bristol Devil's Thumb

Steve Monks and Damian Carroll laid siege to the 1,800m N face of the formidable Devil's Thumb (2,767m), 30 miles inland from the sea-board of the Alaskan 'panhandle'. They planned it as a largely ice-climb in April-May but continuously bad weather made them abandon the attempt on the Thumb, and likewise a new route on the nearby Burkett Needle. Nonetheless, they were impressed with the climbing potential of this area.
