Carl Battreall: A Collection of Climbed and Unclimbed Alaska Peaks
The Northwest ridge of Mt. Moffit (13,020'); Mount Shand, (12,660'), is the peak lit in the background. William Shand Jr., who was on the first ascent team in 1942, was killed in a car accident a few months after the climb. Mt. Moffit was supposed to be named after him, unfortunately, a mistake was made and the neighboring peak was given the name Mt. Shand instead.
