CWVC Ruth Glacier Mountaineering Course Update

AMS Guide Colby Coombs phoned in from the Ruth Glacier.  They team is doing well, yesterday they skied and enjoyed the super weather. 

They had their first challenge right away getting to the Mountain House Hut, using fixed lines, ascenders and the buddy system to climb the steep slope to reach the doorway!  They worked together as a team and made it happen, and they they had a great day.

Here is a past photo of the Mt. House and the amazing view of Denali from the Hut.
