AMS Denali team 6/18- Josh Hoeschen: LAUNCH!

AMS team led by Josh Hoeschen and Chelsea Bomba have departed Talkeetna last evening around 5pm with Talkeetna Air Taxi for Kahiltna basecamp after a solid day of packing, park service orientation, fixed line ascension and generally having a good time preparing. This team has traveled from all over: Indonesia, Germany, Virginia, Brazil, etc. One person took a course with us and is now ready to tackle a Denali expedition! There has been a "best hat" friendly competition between guide Chelsea and climber Herbert: gold v 80's colors... See group photo.

AMS climber Donald Halvorsen testing out the puffy jacket rentals and re-enacting the "action suit" drawing behind him. This puffy is not part of the action suit per se, but it does symbolize being ready for the elements of Denali! 

Rockstar team all packed up and ready to go to air taxi: top L Kevin, Cristiano, Herbert, guide Josh, guide Chelsea, Julien, and Donald
