South ridge, East Kahiltna peak
First pitch, mini-moonflower
The mountaineering season was a blur as usual this year. I had barely enough time in Talkeetna to clean up from one trip before I started packing for the next one. The field time was exceptional. I was able to explore some new places including East Kahiltna peak, the Mini-moonflower, Ruth Gorge, and the Pika glacier. My Denali patrol was able to summit in excellent weather, and all medicals and rescues I worked on went smoothly . You can't ask for more than that. Some photos from the trips can be found at:
