AMS 6 Day Mountaineering Course 7/4, Stroud: RETURNS!

The crew unpacking and drying gear at AMS headquarters 
AMS students learning different snow anchors: this is mid-process of "work-hardening" the snow to create a snow bollard.

AMS 6 Day Mountaineering Course 7/4, Stroud


returned last night after having a great time in the Pika Glacier, an offshoot of the Kahiltna Glacier. 
They were able to get some rock climbing in, move camp down glacier, practice crevasse rescue, roped travel, and learned a variety of snow anchors, etc. Everyone had a great time!
