Mt. Shuksan: Team Schellens Continues Their Training in the North Cascades

Hi all,
Jim, Joy, and I had a great day of training today despite some very ominous looking clouds- the rain held off until about 4 pm.  We did some good crampon review, self-arrest and team-arrest practice, as well as rope travel on glaciers and lastly climbing on rock.  I think Jim and Joy enjoyed the rock climbing practice the most.  Now we are in our tents again waiting for the rain to stop so we can hopefully get an anchor building lesson in before dinner and then bed.  We will try to climb tomorrow if we get the weather for it; otherwise, we have Thursday to fall back on.  We are all having a great time despite the rain, and spirits are still high.  Jim and Joy are laughing right through the bad weather.  That’s all for now.

Thanks for checking in on us.
