Alaska Range Alpine Mountaineering
I just returned from a week on the beautiful Kahiltna Glacier teaching a six day alpine mountaineering course for the American Alpine Institute. Although we were hampered by unseasonably warm temperatures and deep isothermal snow (up to mid-thigh while on snowshoes!), we were able to explore the glacier, develop and refine some climbing skills, and do a whole lot of crevasse rescue practice. Thanks to everyone for the great trip!
