Hurdygurdy Mountain Attempt 9/2001

Taking a drink in Hanging Valley

Climbing up to Eagle River Overlook

The ridge from Harp Mountain

Rumble, Korohusk, Kiliak, Yukla and others from the overlook

Peaks on the Eagle and Whiteout Glaciers

Yukla's intimidating northwest face

Korohusk and Kiliak

We were so close to the summit

We were climbing the ridge when a bus-sized hidden cornice fell out from under Dicks right foot, luckily his left foot was on rock

My feet dangling over the edge where the cornice collapsed and fell nearly half a mile into Hanging Valley. We decided to go home at that point.
