Mount Augusta, North Ridge

Not much to say about this now. It all seems to long ago... What there is can be found in the original expedition report, British Mount Augusta Expedition 1993


Mount Augusta, North Ridge 14,070' (7000').

Second ascent of the route and first British ascent. Surprisingly this was also only the forth ascent of the mountain. Further details can be found in “Alaska a Climbing Guide”, Michael Wood & Colby Coombs, p167.
