Mt. Shuksan: Walter and Seminar Team Focus on Training
Our Expedition Skills Seminar - Shuksan team is enjoying nice weather here in the North Cascades. Our camp is tucked in at 6,200’ amongst stunning alpine scenery on the flanks of the Sulphide Glacier. We have unobstructed views on Shuksan’s summit pyramid to the north, and the northern Picket Range to the south. Baker Lake winds its way south through the valley bottom, far below us.
We just returned back to camp after a morning out on the glacier practicing various climbing skills such as ice axe arrest and cramponing. This afternoon we’ll work on some technical skills starting with knots and hitches.
Everyone is doing well and enjoying the alpine air.
