IMG Guide Training: Last week we had 25 IMG Guides here for our annual guide training. It’s always nice to catch up with folks you haven’t seen in a few months. We’re a family around here so while a lot of folks might not have seen each other in quite some time – we pick right back up where we left off without skipping a beat. We wrapped up the training with the annual BBQ in the rain.
IMG HQ: The lawn is mowed. The tents are up. New ropes are here. We’re stocked up on bacon, pancake mix, cocoa and coffee. The guide schedule is locked in and the vans have been fueled up. Lastly the 2014 Summit Board is up.
Camp Muir: IMG Guides Josh McDowell, Jonathan Schrock, Josh Smith, Dallas Glass, Cedric Gamble and new guides Nickel Wood and Betsy Dain-Owen are working hard up at Camp Muir getting the weatherport set-up, and the Gombu bunkhouse cleaned out.
The Flats: Three of the guides on Muir set-up took a load up to the flats to start the set-up of our camp up there.
The First Climb: IMG Guide Josh Tapp rolled in from Montana last night. Tapp is leading the first climb of the season which gets started today with the orientation & gear check.
And finally, it looks like the weather is going to cooperate for the start of the season!
We’re off and running!
