McAlpine MTC 12 Returns!

The Mountaineering Course returned to Talkeetan after a 1 day delay.  The team is in great spirits.  Instructors Travis McAlpine, Jake Kayes and Karina Amortegui taught the students new skills and they had time to practice.  They moved camp 4 times, ice and rock climbed,  did crevasse rescue.

They were very efficient team on their return. They quickly unloaded the van, separated gear and enjoyed their welcome back snack!

Taking a short break


Please enjoy a few photos from their trip:
