We had a team assemble in Anchorage over the weekend, consisting of some returning Mountain Trip friends. Isaac and Ariel Tyler are back with us, as well as some friends from across the pond, Mary Scannell and Grant Ritchie. All four have climbed with us in the past, and we are grateful for their continued faith in our operations. Private teams like this are a lot of fun for both the climbers and the guides, and we have enjoyed helping everyone prepare for this endeavor. The guides are Karen Bockel and Brian Smith.
The team flew into the Southeast Fork of the Kahiltna Glacier and is making it’s way up to the site of Camp 1, at roughly 7800′. They were fortunate to get in, as the weather has turned a bit.
We will post updates from the team s we hear them and will hopefully have some very descriptive audio posts from these seasoned climbers!
