Tony Hogan called in from 7,200′ on the Southeast Fork of the Kahiltna Glacier!
The team flew into the Alaska Range in the afternoon, after attending a mandatory orientation presented to every Denali climber by our national Park Service. They loaded up fixed wing aircraft and flew about a half hour into the rigged mountains north and west of Talkeetna, Alaska.
Arriving on the glacier, after a slightly bouncy landing on skis, they off loaded the plane and set up their camp. The evening was spent reviewing skills for the glacier and feasting on pizza!
