In 2003 David Parker, Bill Pilling, Fred Beckey, Matt Perkins and myself made it to the Monarch Icefield.

Fred wanted to climb the west route on the mountain but never made it out of camp. During the day to climb Monarch I was ill and stayed in camp with Fred.

During this trip we also made a likely first ascent on Princess Mountain's northeast ridge.
