Combat Wounded Veterans Challenge Mountaineering Course

Instructors Colby Coombs, Beth Cleary, Robert Wing are preparing to fly into the Ruth Glacier for a six day Mountaineering Course.   This strong enthusiastic group is anxious to learn new skills.  

This past Sunday, they checked gear, packed lunches and began classes. Tuesday, they reviewed skills and awaited flyable weather, today they are going on a local 3 mile hike through the woods to test their gear and  hope to fly onto the Glacier!

We work with this team annually and really love this wonderful team.
