Update Received: July 5, 2014. Alpine Mountaineering and Technical Leadership (AMTL) Part 3: Picket Traverse. 

Alasdair called in from the base of Mt. Challenger the weather has been patchy the past few days so they've had to adjust their plans accordingly . Since their last update, they have moved from their bivy site on the North Ridge Mt. Whatcom and made a high traversed around Whatcom Peak on the Whatcom Glacier to Perfect Pass. They were also able to climb Whatcom Peak from the south side. From Perfect Pass they traversed around Eiley-Wiley Ridge where they will sit tight until the weather clears. The plan for the next move it to traverse Mt. Challenger down into Luna Creek.
