First Denali West Buttress of the season!! 5/4/15- Opp

AMS guide Nate Opp and Elliot Gaddy flew to Kahiltna Basecamp with a fun and diverse crew this afternoon after a good day and a half of gear checks, packing, and Denali Skills workshop. One interesting story about how two climbers met: at a running race where one of them were wearing a pair of glacier goggles, which instantly gave away that they were into mountaineering. Today they flew in together to tackle the Great One, Denali. We wish them the best as our first AMS crew on the mountain!

AMS Denali team looking good! Marlies, Dexter, Elliot, Nate, Steve, Naira, and Tim. 
AMS crew getting psyched on Nate's new pants. The gear you choose to wear on Denali is key, as you will be wearing it for around 21 days.
