Glacier Ninja's back in Talkeetna

Yesterday the Glacier Ninjia's returned to Talkeetna safe and sound.

It sounds as if the team had quite the time under nearly constant snowstorms. From the 14,200' camp they played it smart, digging avalanche test pits daily and evaluated that the avalanche conditions were far too high for a safe ascent to the 16,200' ridge and above. AMS guides have a great deal of professional avalanche forecasting training, which obviously is a major asset in the mountains, especially during this expedition.

Welcome back and congrats to you all on a great expedition, you all came back to the land of green smiling and happy. Thanks for wrapping up the AMS 2010 Denali expeditions season in good style.
