Snowbound Alaska with Melissa Arnot, Part Two
Posted on December 17, 2015

When Melissa Arnot, Adam Russell and Jon Mancuso headed for the remoteness of Alaska’s Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve, it was to cleanse the events on Everest with a wilderness climbing experience. But Alaska can be an unforgiving place. Instead of a quiet glacier camp and rejuvenating alpine climb on 14,831-foot Mt. Bear in the St. Elias range, her small self-supported team experienced sketchy crevasse-ridden navigation, multiple life-threatening situations and a storm that held them captive until they ran out of food. Snowbound Alaska captures their brutal alpine climbing experience. —LYA Editor
