Squeezed between trips to Europe and Asia, I spent last May in Alaska attempting to ski the ephemeral, 7000' South Face of University Peak with Jessica Baker, Sheldon Kerr, and photographer Krystle Wright. After a complicated multi day approach to reach the base of the route, most of the snow was gone and the shed cycle had taken its toll. We did climb part way up before opting to bail, narrowly avoiding the daily avalanches that swept the face from top to bottom. Mountains are always an adventure and I look forward to seeing this one again someday. Special thanks to our many sponsors. Check out our story here.
