In March/April 2018, Uisdean Hawthorn and Tom Livingstone went to the Revelation Range in Alaska. They attempted the unclimbed north face of Mt. Jezebel (2,880 meters) but bailed at about one-third height.

They turned to the east face, where fellow Brits Pete Graham and Ben Silvestre has established an alpine route in 2015.

Over two days, Tom and Uisdean climbed a new route called Fun or Fear. The route was an exciting mix of both emotions, with some stellar ice and neve… and some rotten, boomy scary pitches.The route was an exciting mix of both emotions, with some stellar ice and neve… and some rotten, boomy scary pitches.
