This is a video of our 2 week climbing expedition into the remote Neacola Mountains of Alaska. We completed two first ascents during the trip which was plagued with bad weather. Thanks to Aaron Thrasher and Ben Chriswell for the awesome companionship through the storms and climbing.
We didn't get to attempt our primary objective due to punishing weather. However, we completed a new route called Where's the Gas (III 5.8 AI3) on a peak we called 'Mystery Mountain' and another called Last Bastion (V 5.10 A1) on a peak we called the 'Dogtooth'.
Music from Alaska musicians Rebecca K. File, "With Salt," and Double Aught, aka Operation Overlord, "Speed Racer."
This trip was supported financially by the American Alpine Club McNeill-Nott Award. Thanks to Black Diamond for their continued support of my climbing ventures.
