JUNE 7 TEAM DOING THE “TALKEETNA HANG”

Unfortunately the weather has not cooperated with the team’s schedule, and they are becoming intimately familiar with the small Alaskan town of Talkeetna. Lead guide Seba Grau reports that the team has been taking advantage of time in town to review camp building skills and sled rigging techniques. And enjoying fresh, hot coffee! The weather has not been particularly bad in Talkeetna, but at Base Camp it has been snowy with low visibility. The team has already checked-in and weighed-in with our air services provider, so they are on “stand by” until the weather clears.  The good news is that Talkeetna is a small enough town that the climbers can walk around freely, without waiting at the airstrip. Once the pilot gives the thumb’s up, a very loud alarm goes off which can be heard throughout town, and indicates to climbers that it’s time to fly!
