Fred ski touring in the Pantheon Range - April 2003

I've been regularly climbing mountains in southwest British Columbia and western United States since about 1992, and have failed to reach the summit in many attempts. After climbing Mount Rainier in 1995, I decided to try some of the higher peaks on this continent and subsequently climbed McKinley (1996), Aconcagua, Robson (1997), Logan (1998), and Ixta, Orizaba (2001). A notable failure has been Fairweather (1999). Lately I've been concentrating on the local peaks in the southern Coast Mountains and northern Cascades, aside from a yearly two-week ski traverse across one of the many icefields in the Coast Range. In 2004, I completed the Wilderness Navigation Handbook which I would be pleased to send you a copy.
