In May 2015, the Austrian team of Hansjörg Auer and Much Mayr made the first ascent of Alaska's previously unclimbed Mt. Reaper via their North Face route Sugar Man (M7, 85°, A1, 750m). According to the team, "The ice couldn’t have been any thinner, otherwise the alpine style attempt would have ground to a halt."
