Horn Spire Trailer

Uploaded by alpinemikealaska

This is a trailer of our 2nd ascent of this classic spire on the Juneau Ice Field. The first ascent took place in the summer of 1973 by a local group of Juneau climbers. The story goes Fred Becky had his eye on this in the early 70's, but the local boys persisted on getting the first ascent. I have many hours of footage, considering it took us four tries over the course of two years to reach the summit. The mountain is as technical as it looks and conditions determined our success.
