The first detailed book to describe the tasks necessary to prepare a mountaineering expedition to the Alaska Range, Wrangell Mountains, Chugach Range, and St. Elias Mountains. Topics include route planning, glacier flying, regulations, avalanches, equipment, food, climbing strategies, weather, and ethics. Despite its date this book still has much to offer. Everett made two ascents of McKinley, a new route on St. Elias, two ascents of Logan, a new route on King Peak, and the first ascent of Mount King George. He was killed in an avalanche while on the 1969 American Dhaulagiri Expedition. Uncommon.
