Unclimbed Alaskan Peaks Still Await "Discoverers" Aerial surveys have made pos sible detailed maps ofplaces where man has never set foot. Though Mount McKinley has been scaled nine times inthe 40 years since Archdeacon Hudson Stuck's party reached the top of South Peak in1913, lesser moun tains remain tochallenge climbers.
