CWVC Mountaineering Course, 6/3-6/14, Hoeschen and Denali Custom Traverse, 5/25, English: Return!

AMS guides Josh Hoeschen and Karina Amortegui, flew back today from the Pika Glacier with a great group of guys, all combat wounded veterans out for a challenge in the Alaska Range! They learned a lot of mountaineering skills such as anchor building, crevasse rescue, winter camping, roped travel and experienced a variety of Alaska weather. Check out the pictures below:
