AMS guide Josh Hoeschen just called in from the Ruth Glacier. They have been having a great time. Lately they have had really good conditions. They had just finished climbing the Japanese Couloir on Mt Barrille when I talked to him. A couple of days ago they climbed the NorthWest Couloir on London Tower.
They are scheduled to fly out of the Range tonight or tomorrow morning weather depending.
Below are a couple of photos taken on the Japanese Couloir.
We update the AMS blog whenever we hear from guides and instructors reporting from the field. Some staff call in more frequently than others. No news is good news and indicates all is going according to plan. We will do our best to keep those who want to be up to date, up to date.
