Infinite Spur in a Day

Steve House and Rolando Garibotti have climbed Alaska's Infinite Spur, a 9,000-foot sweep of granite and ice, in a blistering fast 25 hours. The testpiece line on the south face of Mt. Foraker had seen only three repeats since its first ascent in 1977, and the fastest previous climb was seven days. House and Garibotti climbed with small packs and a single rope, and they simulclimbed most of the route. The descent took another 20 hours. Details and photos coming soon in a future issue of Rock and Ice Magazine.
