British Mount Dickey

This team planned a new 'laser-line' 1,600m route on the E face of Mount Dickey (2,909m) in the Ruth Gorge of Central Alaska to the right of 'Blood from a Stone', as well as 'scoping' other new route potential in the area. Unfortunately, before even setting foot on the mountain, the leader injured his back, and had to return home, so was unable to take any further part in activities. Fortunately, an American team of Freddie Wilkinson and Ben Gilmore took pity on Samuel, and with them he repeated 'Snowpatrol', climbed by Sam Chinnery and Andy Sharpe a couple of weeks earlier [MEF 04/30].
