VALDEZ, Alaska--Bradford Washburn, Harvard Geographer and leader of the University's Alaskan expedition, reported today that all equipment had reached the first base camp on the Natuanuska Glacier near here. The group will survey the unmapped Chugach Mountain Range.

A ski-equipped airplane, piloted by Bob Reeve, carried the first load of equipment to the camp 60 miles from here, on May 16, after waiting five weeks for the weather to clear. As the plane had to fly over a 12,000 feet range, perfect flying weather was necessary, according to Washburn.

The party intends to climb Mt. St. Agnes, 15 miles from the base camp and the highest mountain in the un-charted area.
