British Alaskan Expedition (1981)

Timothy Leach and Nicholas Colton succeeded in 2 of their 3 objectives: the 1st ascents of the striking N pillar of Rooster Comb (a 'Scottish' type climb) and of the 1,200m W face of Mt Huntington (more 'Alpine'), which should become classic climbs of a high standard. Bad weather then obliged them to abandon their objective (the 1,825m buttress of Mt Hunter) in favour of an 'acclimatising walk'-with several days of stormy weather up the, W buttress of Mt McKinley.
