Upper West Rib Team – Single Carried to 9,600′

The Upper West Rib Team checked in after a strong push up to 9,600′, which they did in one push, moving their camp up 1,800′ from their home of last night.  This is called “single carrying,” when you load up all you kit and just move your camp higher up the mountain.

The weather has improved somewhat, but the section of the Kahiltna Glacier that they have camped in is just below one of the major mountain passes in the Alaska Range, and weather can funnel through the pass on occasion, which it sounds like it was doing as they climbed up this afternoon.

Here is the team!
