12 Day Mountaineering Course, 4/19 Emerson

AMS Guide Nate Emerson, Andy, Zach, Tom, Laurel
AMS Guide Elias Holt (kneeling)

AMS Guides Nate Emerson and Elias Holt were excited to be leading our first course of the season.  The team enjoyed great spring weather as they prepared to fly.  They were efficient packing lunches and gear checking.  They were ready to head to the airport early.

This will be an incredible course they are flying to the SE Fork of Kahiltna. They plan to establish camp and spend the next few days learning and practicing rope skills, glacier travel, self arrest. The team's goal will be to traverse to the Pika glacier, which is about 15-20 miles.
