AMS guide Todd Tumolo and climber Brent Roaten are cranking. As of 8:40PM tonight they were on the summit of Peak 11,300' in the Ruth Glacier of the Alaska Range. They stopped to brew up some hot drinks and food and to enjoy the view from the top before beginning their descent. They left their base camp to start the climb at 3:30 AM and cruised it!!
This is what you get when you train, train and train some more and all the stars line up for you too.
