Leighan's Team Gets a Cooking Lesson
Last night, Leighan's team, which would like to be known as Glacier Ninjas (due to the fact that they all have black sleds,) got a cooking lesson from guides Leighan and Todd. On the menu was ravioli with homemade sauce. Today they have been reviewing anchor systems for crevasse rescue. Earlier they practiced belaying in and out of the safe zone with speed and efficiency. This afternoon a trip to the local museum is planned but things could change at a moment's notice. They are ready to jump on a plane if the weather dictates. The benefit of weather delays is that the practice they are doing now will mean they will work more efficiently together on the glacier. They will leave base camp immediately upon arrival not needing to review any skills.
