12 Day Mountaineering Course- English

AMS guide Dustin English contacted today to say they are doing well and practicing lots of good skills. They are scheduled to return to Talkeetna 5/5/15 weather dependent.

Some of the skills learned today by this motivated group were 2 person team crevasse rescue. This is somewhat of an advanced technique as with an entire group the weight is dispersed between multiple people, but with two people one has to set up an anchor under tension. We are excited to greet them tomorrow!
