AMS mountaineering courses RETURN! Advanced and 6-day

AMS 6 day mountaineering course unpacking
Lots happening here at AMS headquarters. AMS advanced course led by John Sykes got picked up in the Ruth Gorge and Six day mountaineering course led by Wes Bunch from the Pika, have returned all in good spirits from an awesome time in the Alaska Range. Drying gear, eating watermelon and other goodies, re-connecting to the internet all commenced. Really fun and competent group that was fun to meet. 

One student on the Advanced course that had read about the Ruth Gorge and all of the great history of climbing that has occurred there amongst the rock walls that rise taller than Yosemite, was especially grateful to finally visit that special place. 

Coffee fueling everyone as Denali preparations and de-issuing gear is happening
