They frantically doused the mystery blaze, but lost vital gear including three silk tents, clothing, and food stuffs. Sifting through the embers, Stuck determined that a careless match or spark dropped earlier had smoldered to life, igniting the fire. Six weeks into the expedition, the fire was the first setback in the press toward the ultimate prize.

The work of the next few days would determine if they could continue on or be forced to retreat. Makeshift substitutions allowed the expedition to continue. Harry Karstens led the initial assault up the "central north-eastern ridge" that bypassed an enormous icefall at the head of the glacier. Instead of the easy snow slope that a previous expedition had described, the ridge was a dangerous, shattered mass of ice and snow.

The climbers set aside their packs and began chopping steps upward. An earthquake the year before had turned what otherwise would have been a simple, three-day climb, into three weeks of grueling, dangerous work. Finally on May 30, the weather broke and after six exhausting relays, the climbers established a new camp at the top of the ridge beneath a rock outcrop, now known as Browne Tower. The laborious step cutting was behind them. Stuck later rejected any credit for conquering the ridge.

After several long hard relays, and an intermediate stop, the expedition soon established its high camp at 17,' in the Grand Basin between the North and South Peaks. With two full weeks of food and fuel on hand, which could be stretched to three if necessary, the climbers were well-provisioned to wait out an extended storm, or even establish yet another, higher camp. Everything seemed primed for success but on Mount McKinley, there is no sure thing. Archdeacon Stuck, so near his long-cherished goal, was failing.

For days, he had been convulsed by choking and shortness of breath, even blackouts. Only his extraordinary will and the excellence of his companions had gotten him this high.

Above 20,' a sub-zero wind slashed at the four haggard climbers inching up the icy slope. Everyone stopped often to catch their breath and pound warmth into their hands and feet. Altitude sickness pummeled them all. They labored on with pounding headaches and churning stomachs. Just past mid-day, Walter Harper stopped.

He could go no higher. After weeks of toil, he had reached the top of North America's tallest mountain. Karstens and Tatum came seconds behind. Stuck, the last man on the rope, collapsed unconscious on the summit.
