Foraker Summitted by AMS Team

Mission Impossible: Completed

We are really EXCITED to announce that Melis Coady's and Josh Hoeschen's team just summitted Mount Foraker.

Craig is quoted as saying, "I don't know where else to go...the altimeter says 17,400 feet"
(This was Craig's third attempt on Foraker.) The summit attempt took them about 11 hours.
The weather today is clear and calm.

Well done Nick, Mike Dan and Craig. They are now descending to their high camp for a well deserved rest.
