The group gear has been checked and the duffels have been packed.
IMG Guides Austin Shannon and Sheldon Kerr are off to Alaska tomorrow to meet up with our Mt. Bona climbers. On Sunday they’ll drive to Bush Pilot, Paul Klaus’ airstrip for their flight to the Wrangell/St. Elias Range. Their absolute destination will be determined by the weather, but their primary goal will be the Klutlan Glacier with Paul’s lodge as their back-up until weather clears for landing.
While the first ascent of Mt. Bona was made by Alan Carpe, Terris Moore & Andrew Taylor in 1930 this will be everybody’s first summit, minus Sheldon, who summitted a couple years ago.
Have a great climb guys!
