AMS guides Nick D'Alessio and Fallon Connolly head out today with group of three climbers to the Pika glacier. All three participants it is there first time to Alaska and they are excited to see some of the best parts! About 5 pm Alaska time tonight they departed on a glacier plane into the Alaska Range. When we hear updates from the guides, will post again with previous photos from the Pika glacier!
