May 8 Team – Jacob Calls from Base Camp

Lead guide Jacob Schmitz called in from the Southeast Fork of the Kahiltna Glacier.  The team all flew in and is camped on the snow at the increasingly bustling “Kahiltna International Airport.”  Planes come and go regularly, delivering climbers and sight seers alike.  They will spend some time working on skills today and tomorrow morning, before moving up onto the Kahiltna Glacier to establish their Camp 1 at about 7,800′.

Here’s Jacob.
