The team had a busy first day yesterday gear checking, packing lunches. Instructors Jake and Sammie gave classes fixed line ascension, tents. Today, while waiting for the skies to clear they had classes building anchors, pulley systems and knots all here at the AMS HQ in Talkeetna.
Will, Claire and Nick are really fun and have been enjoying the classwork, now the are super excited to put these skills all to use in the mountains.
