Fast forward a bunch of years, and my first trip back into Kwoiek Creek with Don Funk turned out to be a doozie! Skihist Mountain via a new route, an overnight bivy, a horrible vehicle creek crossing and slide alder hell. We returned a month later to climb Mount Nielson in one 25 hour day (house to house). Don returned a few weeks later and climbed Petlushkwohap, again enduring an unplanned bivy. Maybe that is why I love this area, it demands a lot out of the average mountaineer.
The long weekend of September 2005 was not looking so great weather-wise. One day (Sunday) looked pretty good though. I called Don and we bounced around more than a few ideas. Fred called, and as luck would have it, he was free this weekend as well. I had wanted to climb some of the bigger peaks that made up the Kwoiek glacier area, and we decided on just that. Some of Don's pictures from previous trips revealed a very cracked up Kwoiek glacier, so some alpine gear was necessary.
