We are back!

Hola friends, family and loved ones,

The day begin clear and calm, perfect for flying. So we pack our duffle bags and dropped our tents. We bid fairwell to Antarctica and Vinson and all of the fun we had.
Summit Time

Hanging out!

Once we landed in South America our bus whisked us to the hotel where we dumped our luggage and headed out to find food and libation.
Happy campers!

We are on our way home tomorrow but we wanted to thank you for sharing our adventure. See you soon on another mountain!

All my best,Vern Tejas

The quality of guiding is the biggest strength of this program. Definitely 200% better than any other organizations I’ve climbed with. Guiding is also way better (they teach you stuff).

  • Pulling an Expedition Sled

    A common question we have from our course participants before they arrive for their trips is how to rig up an expedition sled to their pack. This technique is super useful for any of our Alaska programs – and is especially crucial on Denali. Matt Miller discusses this process below.

  • Guide’s Kit: The Sun Hoody

    Periodically, we will talk about a piece of gear that we wouldn’t go without! These are pieces of gear we feel are invaluable after years of experience living, learning, and working in the alpine environment. Glaciers in the summertime can be a brutal place.
