A terrific account of the 1937 first ascent of Mount Lucania (17,150’), then the highest unclimbed peak in North America, by Bob Bates and Brad Washburn. With their support aircraft unable to return for them, due to unusually warm weather softening the glacier snow, Bates and Washburn had no choice but to climb Lucania, then make the second ascent of Mount Steele (16,644’), and begin an epic 156 mile escape. An amazing read! Winner of the Grand Prize at the 2003 Banff Mountain Book Festival.
