Michael Horst called to check in from Mt. Shuksan, letting us know that all is going well on the first part of the 13-day program. They’ve been learning mountaineering skills and put those skills into action with a successful summit yesterday (Tuesday). They even had time to do a little ice climbing on the way down! The next section will be rock-focused, with the location being somewhat dependent on the forecast. We’ll post another update when we hear more, but for now Micahel and the climbers are doing really well and enjoying the smaller team learning environment.
