"Next we geared up for an attempt of the Bibler-Klewin on Mt. Hunter's North Buttress (commonly and erroneously referred to as the "Moonflower Buttress"). First climbed in 1983 by Todd Bibler and Doug Klewin, this route snakes up an aesthetic line of ice streaks on the crest of the North Buttress."
Stunning solo obviously no matter what route or where he stopped high on the mtn. But a nice tribute as well imo to his visit there climbing with Bjørn-Eivind Årtun.

Fuck. My palms sweat at the thought! BURLY.
Not the Bibler/Klewin. But yes solo on Hunter to within 300 meters of the summit. Rapped with the Koreans.
Props to Colin
