Entire normal route up Huayna Potosi in Bolivia is shown (6/93). After crossing dam and walking along the viaduct, which ends near the lighter colored rock, the route follows up the sharp lateral moraine. Our Camp 1 was just below the black slope in the middle of the picture. High Camp is at about  18,500 feet on the snow plateau above. The route then goes to the right and up through headwall to snow ridge on the right edge of the picture. Eventually a very sharp ridge leads to the left up to the approx. 20,000-foot high summit, which is the second and furthest peak in the photo.  <br />

Two Canadians following us on Izta (1/94). I'm standing on "Going to the Sun Ridge." The true summit at 17,343 feet, when you finally see it after the last false summit on the 12-mile round trip route, is still 2 miles away and only 10 feet higher in elevation. I should also note that the route starts at an elevation of over 13,000 feet. <br /> <br />Photo by Paul Huebner

Hans Steykal and I climbed the Southwest Ridge of the Zinal-Rothorn starting at the notch about the mid point in the ridge (28 pitches, IV, 5.7). Crux is in chimney on north side above 13,000 feet. Approach from the Rothorn Hutte involved crossing 3 glaciers, 1 tricky Bergshrund and 4th Class rock. We descended the normal route (Southeast Ridge), which comes towards you in the picture. Our time hut to hut was 14 hrs. Epic descent hike (on rubbery legs after eating a meal) back to Zermatt occurred because we had to be in Chamonix the next day (7/90). Photo was taken from the summit of the Riffelhorn, which I soloed the day before and the same day Hans and I hiked up to the Rothorn Hutte. I had younger legs back then.

Ghiacciaio del Rutor near the Rifugio A. Deffeyes above La Thuile, Italy. The Deffeyes hut keeper congratulated David Panofsky, his wife, Pat Smith and I for being the first party that season to venture up the Glacier du Planaval from the Val Grisanche in Italy to get to  where I took this picture and eventually to the Refugio. A short section of the actual trek (Via Alta #4) we completed runs along the French Border in this area on the other side of Rutor Glacier. We had to make a detour and ascend up to the Rutor Glacier from Italy because the French huts had closed for the season a day early. It had been and continued to be a very bad season for climbing in the Alps due to warmer than normal conditions. We had only brought trekking poles and in-step crampons and experienced a number of close calls crossing the Glacier du Planaval and then ascending its steep lateral moraine on its northern boundary in the heat of the day (9/98).     <br /> <br />Photo by Paul Huebner

Stembecco (Alpine Ibex) are now quite common in the Gran Paradiso Parco Nazionale, which was originally created in the Val d' Aosta in Italy in 1821 to protect what is one of the largest mammals indigenous to the Alps from over hunting (9/98). <br /> <br />Photo by Paul Huebner

Ascent of Mt. Sturdee. After ascending the Southeast Couloir, a short traverse to the northeast brings you to the start of a full rope pitch of easy rock (5.5) with one horn to sling for pro. P2 goes up a wide (5.4) chimney that tops out right below the  summit. To descend we down-climbed the chimney and set up a rap that brings you back down to where you can traverse back to the southeast couloir. Approach from high camp is up and over the Assiniboine-Strom Col and then down to and across Icefield, and then south up along the East Ridge of Mt. Asinniboine to the Assiniboine-Sturdee Col. Cross the col over to the hidden couloir  (8/91).  <br /> <br />
