Ascent Trip Report

Did this with Doug Buchanan and two other Fairbanks chums as part of a two week ski traverse from the Delta River to the Tanana River. Up the Castner, over the pass between Sight and M'Ladies, down the Johnson Glacier/River to Sonny Lindner's cabin and highway. We climbed Tusac and 9600 from a camp on the Johnson. As far as i know i was the first human to stand on the summit of 9600.
