AMS guide Pat Ormond and climber Marc have returned to the HQ in Talkeetna! They successfully climbed Moose's Tooth and then bumped over to SE Fork of the Kahlitna Glacier to explore other options. They had a great time in the range. Welcome back!

AMS Instructor Larry Holmgren leading the 12 Day Mountaineering Course checked in to let us know they are doing well and have completed their technical skill courses. Tomorrow they plan to move camp and put the new mountaineering skills to work towards peak ascents.
We update the AMS blog whenever we hear from guides and instructors reporting from the field. Some staff call in more frequently than others. No news is good news and indicates all is going according to plan. We will do our best to keep those who want to be up to date, up to date.
