AMS Custom Mountaineering Course, Young 7/9

Guides Betsy Young, Pete Tapley along with students Carter and Theo just left for the airport.

Carter and Theo have been doing multi-day backpacking trips for several years.  Along the way they began climbing the highest point in each state.  They have climbed 47.

The team is flying to the SE Fork of the Kahiltna Glacier.  They will be learning lots of climbing skills in addition to getting a good look at Alaska's high point, Denali.
