Alaska-Deeper, Mt McConkey

By

Jeremy Jones with one of the best I have never been one to name first descents but now that I am hiking and riding these unnamed and unclimbed peaks I have started to name the special ones.- Since Shane’s death I have been looking for one for him.- We moved camp to a new zone that is a series of 6 peaks that range from mellow to mega gnar with easy access.- This zone is the perfect spot I have seen for plane access riding and it is only twenty minutes from town. The biggest and baddest peak I decided to name after Shane. The world new Shane McConkey as a world-class skier and BASE jumper but our friendship had nothing to do with that.- It was based around family and friends. What he did in the mountains was impressive but his greatest achievement was his love and support he provided for his family and friends. jeremyjones.net
