2015 AMTL Part 4 - Little Switzerland - Dispatch 1

Alpine Mountaineering and Technical Leadership Part 4 - Little Switzerland

Expedition Dates: June 14 - June 26, 2015.

Dispatch 1 received June 15th.

Guide Ian called in the first dispatch from Little Switzerland at 55K'. Claysn and Ian's adventure started before they even stepped foot onto the glacier. A wild fire had caused the main road from Anchorage to Talkeetna to be close. With some quick itinerary changes and an unscheduled night in Wasilla, the dynamic duo was able to hop a train and made it into Talkeetna in time to catch a flight onto the glacier. 

The routes look like they are in great condition. Clayton and Ian are excited to see what they can bag in the next 10 days.
