In May of 2015, Austrian mountaineers Hansjörg Auer and Much Mayr traveled to the Neacola Range in Alaska to take on Mt. Reaper, a previous unclimbed peak in a remote region of that state. The two men found conditions to be great for climbing, and made their ascent along a route called “Sugar Man” (M7, 85°, A1, 750m). In this video, we join them on the mountain as they make their way up. It is a wonderful look at the challenges they faced in a place that has rarely been visited by man and still has dozens of mountains that have not been climbed before.
