AMS: Denali Traverse, Tumolo and Custom Climb, Girard: DEPART!

AMS groups are moving in and out of the Alaska Range after some "Talkeetna hang" time. Guide Kai Girard with climber Markus have made it into Kahiltna Base to see what climbs are in good shape. Their original goal was 11,300, but due to the weather delay re-routed.

AMS traverse led by Todd Tumolo and Aaron Divine with climber Koen made it in to start the long haul up and over Denali West Buttress and hiking out the North side of the park.

We will update when we get word from the groups of their whereabouts, but this is not a daily occurrence. Wishing these teams goodluck!
