And They're Off...

Two more custom West Buttress teams headed into base camp this afternoon...
Juan, Andrew, Dom, Guides Nate Opp and Matt Montovan and Alex ready to go.
Guides Mike Soucy and Noah Ronczkowski with Heather and apprentice Travis McAlpine.
Base camp is at 7,200 feet on the Kahiltna Glacier. Their day started at 8:00 AM and now they get to build a camp, set up their tents, melt snow for water, eat dinner and eventually get some sleep and head up glacier tomorrow.

Hey Mike, I see you're heading back to the mountain again. Wish I could join! Great memories from last season, thanks a million! Lucky those who are climbing with you, all the best to all of you!
