June 16th West Rib Team — At Basecamp

Lead-guide Matt Park calls in from Basecamp with the West Rib climbing team. They were able to fly on to the Kahiltna Glacier mid-afternoon and are planning to walk through the night to Camp 1. This day consists of a single carry with all the gear and food needed for the expedition on a 6 mile trek along the longest glacier in the Alaska Range. With warming temperatures on the lower glacier, travel is saved for the coldest times of the day to walk on frozen snow vs mushy heavy snow.
