Well, a weary, yet happy group of climbers flew off the Southeast Fork of the Kahiltna Glacier earlier today. The entire May 26 team is back in the thick warm, humid air of Talkeetna, showering, eating anything but “mountain food” and probably “hydrating” a little bit as well. We launched a van to bring them back to Anchorage, as that was what they asked to do, so by this evening, everyone will be nestled in a soft bed, not wondering if they will be awakened by the sound of the wind buffeting their tent walls. Where is the fun in that?
Congratulations to all the team. Hopefully, we’ll post some photos from their expedition in the coming days, so please continue to stay tuned.
