Massively complex, stunningly beautiful, Mt. Hunter has been at the forefront of alpine innovation since its first ascent in 1954. Scott Backes recounts the history of this Alaska Range icon, while Fred Beckey, Peter Metcalf, Todd Bibler, Jack Tackle, Michael Kennedy and Ian Parnell help celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the first ascent of a distinctly American peak.
