West Buttress Expedition Departure May 22nd

Greetings from little Talkeetna Town! The expedition lead by the guides Jared Vilhauer and Chris Nance started yesterday fairly smoothly. Bob, Anja, Suzy, Honda, Tim, and Ray were all here at 8:00 am sharp to start the process of packing and preparing before the flight into the Alaska Range. We had some delays in regards to Bob's luggage but it arrived this morning so we may be able to get a few items into him. In the long run this really isn't that much to worry about.

Everyone seemed to be in good spirits and having a good time even though their flight time was delayed a couple hours. They were still able to get into base camp last night and according to their itinerary they'll be practicing a few skills including crevasse rescue today. We'll send out updates whenever we hear anything from the field but for those of you interested feel free to call or emaiil the office.
