British Central Alaska Range 1996

Soon after being dropped on Ruth Glacier, the leader of this team devel­oped severe respiratory problems, so he left (with his wife) to seek medical attention. The remaining pair climbed the standard W Ridge route to the western summit of Moose's Tooth, 2,981 m. They then flew round to the Kahiltna Glacier from which they made the first ascent of the S Ridge of Mt Crosson, 3901m: from here they continued up the Sultana Ridge to Mt Foraker, 5,304m, returning by the same route.
