Coady Foraker Update

Coady's team in on southeast ridge of Mount Crosson which is the approach to the Sultana route. They have done a carry of their gear to a point higher on the mountain and are back in camp. They will cross over the 12,800 foot summit and then descend to a col. In all, they will only lose 3,670 feet of elevation from the top of Mount Crosson to get to the base of Mount Foraker's summit ridge.

The weather is awesome. It is 30 degrees and sunny at Kahiltna base camp. There is no wind.

Here's a couple of pictures from past years.
