Fun or Fear - New Route in the Revelations, Alaska

Climbers:
Tom Livingstone, Uisdean Hawthorn

In March/April 2018, Uisdean Hawthorn and Tom Livingstone went to the Revelation Range in Alaska. They attempted the unclimbed north face of Mt. Jezebel (2880m) but bailed at about one-third height. They turned to the east face, where fellow Brits Pete Graham and Ben Silvestre has established an alpine route in 2015.
Over two days, Tom and Uisdean climbed a new route called Fun or Fear. The route was an exciting mix of both emotions, with some stellar ice and neve... and some rotten, boomy scary pitches.
