AMS 12 day Mountaineering Course, Hoeschen, DEPARTS!

AMS August 12 day mountaineering course met this morning with Roadhouse muffins and began gear checking, packing lunches from the amazing food room, and fixed line ascension practice (part of crevasse rescue). Both the participants flew in from the SouthEast part of the states for their first experience of Alaska. They arrived to the Pika glacier this early evening, an amazing glacier that has rock climbs and close-up views of Mt. Foraker. A great way to spend it in the Alaska Range!
