After 100% success to the top of Mt. Bona on May 26, the entire team descended the mountain on May 27. They had hoped to summit nearby Mt. Churchill before descending, but whiteout conditions prevented them from an attempt. Instead, they descended to their base camp and were flown off the mountain the very next morning. Talk about a quick trip down the mountain! I’ve been in touch with trip leader Sheldon Kerr who is flying home from Anchorage today, and will look forward to hearing her full report on the trip.
My congratulations to the entire team for a job very well done!
