'Free Knowledge'

This team had two objectives in mind when they headed for Alaska: to make the first free ascent of 'The Knowledge' on the N buttess of Mt Hunter (4,437m), and then to climb a new route on the SE face of Mt Foraker (5,300m). Unfortunately, they experienced unusually warm and wet weather for the time of year, and returned home having achieved virtually no climbing during their visit.
