New Story in the Tin Shed – Bat’s Ears, the First Ascent

New Story in the Tin Shed – Bat’s Ears, the First Ascent

By Patagonia   |   Dec 4, 2008 December 4, 2008


The fire in the forge has been rekindled – a new story waits inside the Tin Shed. Patagonia ambassador Maxime Turgeon has narrated a slide show of photos from Alaska that depict three climbs he made in April/May 2008.

First you’ll follow Maxime up the previously unclimbed Bat’s Ears Peak with Ben Gilmore and Freddie Wilkinson. The same trio then head over to Mount Hunter for a shot at the classic Moonflower Buttress. Finally, Maxime connects with fellow Patagonia ambassador Zoe Hart to climb Deprivation, also on Mount Hunter. Maxime called the trip his “best alpine week ever.”
