Guide Eliott ,Matthias, Guide Tom , Lorenz,Werner, Holger, Florian, Ingrid Rupert

Guides Tom Torkelson and Elliot Gaddy are leading our first DenaliWest Buttress of the 2012 season. This team is composed of members of the the German DAV Summit Club. AMS is happy to be working with them this year,  they are a well prepared group and are excited to be here and to fly to base camp to start their climb.  The had a day full of activity; gear checking,  lunch packing,  NPS briefing, rigging gear and training. They flew into the Alaska Range and onto the SE Fork of the Kahiltna Glacier this afternoon, after a short weather delay. The weather is beautiful and they are enjoying a clear night at Kahiltna base camp tonight.  This team is strong and well prepared, good luck to them!

Done posing and off to the van!
