The account of that expedition, Escape From Lucania by David Roberts is absolutely riveting and cannot be too highly recommended. Truly alone and cut off from all assistance or support a long way from home Washburn and Bates undertook an epic journey...Hell's ass####, Peter Rabbit Corner, and all the rest...and pulled it off. By way of the approach Bob Reeve shows himself as a fascinating character in his own right.
I always wondered what became of their gear cache on the glacier.
