AMS Custom Mountaineering Course, Young 7/9

AMS guides Betsy Young, Pete Tapley along with students Carter and Theo have briefly checked in today from Kahiltna Basecamp at 7,200 feet.

"All is well at Kahiltna BC, amazing night glacier walk and glacier travel and crevasse rescue class with sunset/sunrise glow on Foraker. Carter and Theo doing well and enjoying themselves     -Betsy "


The group seems to have hit a good weather window and basecamp has quieted down from the busy Denali season, so they can take in the view without a lot of distractions from other climbers.
