Andy Forbes and his guides from Mountain Trip, Sean McManamy and Brian Muller flew into Kahiltna Base Camp today to begin their expedition on Denali. This is the first trip of the season and they were excited to get underway. They met in Anchorage yesterday for a gear check and briefing before heading to Talkeetna this morning. In Talkeetna they checked in at the ranger station and then went to the airport in hopes of flying in. The weather today was a bit cloudy and even snowy this morning, but it cleared enough late this afternoon for the planes from Talkeetna Air Taxi to fly the climbers into base camp.
We’ll post updates every day or two on their progress and wish them the best on their expedition!
