Anyone have any information on this ascent:

Jim Bridwell and Spencer Pfingsten - both are from USA. Dent Moose peak, Alaska, the first ascent The Beast route on Eastern wall, top: 3150m, length of a route - 1500m. Difficulty: VII/A5/6a +/WI4 +/M6. Duration of ascent n: 29 days in 2000y and 30 in 2001.

Nominated for 2002 Piolet D'Or.

Can't find any literature on this, but the grade/time sounds ruthless. Any info would be appreciated.


As a side note, where do some of you get net information on alpinism.
