Greg Runyan and the June Advanced Mountaineering Course launched for the Pika Glacier yesterday. They have a cool game plan to explore some remote corners and climb up into some rarely-explored territory. They said they plan to be busy and we're not likely to hear much from them. Game on!

Two of our teams are at Base Camp waiting for their ride out, Tim Hewette, Alex Stroud & their West Buttress team, and Todd Passey, Joey McBrayer and their West Buttress team. It is raining and foggy there this morning, but there is a swath of blue sky out there. We'll remain hopeful; the watermelon will be ready whenever they get here.
THEY'RE HERE!! Both teams are back, taking showers, naps, and thinking about what to have for dinner. We have partly cloudy skies and lots of sun here in T-town!
Cheers from Talkeetna,
