Alaska Season Starts Early With New Mount Dickey Route
John Frieh, Chad Diesinger and Jason Stuckey have climbed a new route on the northeast face of Mount Dickey.
On March 20 and 21, the three alpinists established Blue Collar Beatdown V WI4 M4 that required 48 hours of climbing, minus a few hours of recovering.
Frieh wrote on his Facebook page, “This is my second first Ascent on Mount Dickey and my ninth ‘first’ in Alaska in the past six years. My thanks to those that played a role in this journey.”
In 2014, Frieh and John Roskelly climbed the new route No Rest for the Wicked IV+ AI6 M7 on the West Witches Tit in southeast Alaska.
