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!
