IMG Senior Guide, Greg Vernovage, reported in yesterday from Denali. The group carried from the confluence of the main and northeast folks of the Kahiltna Glacier up to about 10,400 ft. After dropping their cache, they returned to the confluence. Next move is up to 11,000 ft., returning the next day to pick up the cache at 10,400 ft. Weather, according to Greg, is “splitter”. That means really good. Pretty much perfect for anything.
IMG partners with Alaska Mountaineering School for our trips to Denali. They’re good friends and hold a concession contract to operate on Denali. Many of our guides climb for AMS during the Denali season. Great to be partnering with such a good company.
