Previously unpublished manuscript
by Alfred J. Ostheimer III
Edited by R.W. Sandford & Jon Whelan
Every Other Day is an engaging and entertaining account of the exploits of a brash, very confident, 19 year old amateur climber, A.J. Ostheimer III, and his guide, Hans Fuhrer. Together they climbed some 35 peaks in the Columbia and Clemenceau Icefields area of Jasper National Park in a seven week period during the summer of 1927. Twenty-eight of these peaks were First Ascents. Henry S. Hall, Jr., Editor of the 1928 Harvard Mountaineering, wrote of Ostheimer’s 1927 expedition, “…perhaps the greatest tour de force ever accomplished in a single season in the Canadian Rockies”.
