I think their first attempt was in 2005 and then in 2008, but I am not sure of the dates or the routes they attempted. The earlier attempt was with a large group and documented in the Canadian Alpine Journal, this trip may have been sponsored by Saskatchewan ACC section.
If interested in contacting them for background information, send me a PM and I will pass on their email contact.

What was the problem coming from the north / west? Could you not get to the Chitina then T-Bone Glaciers?

After looking at my maps, you are right that Mimi and I climbed the peak they call P9850' on 4/26/97 on the north side of the glacier and lies right on the border. We had landed at 7200' and went up the little glacier to the north before turning east to go up the ridge to the summit. We climbed over P 8580' and along the ridge across the main glacier on the 4/28 which is a peak due southwest of P9850' by about a mile. I'd have to read the AAJ write up to refresh my memory more, but it is stored away right now.
I had climbed Mt. Chitina to the west back in 1988 and had scouted this area during that earlier trip.
