The team will fly into AK on May 28th and then plans to fly onto the Kahiltna Glacier on May 29th. Their intent is to use skis and splitboards to reach the 14,000ft base camp over 3-5 days. Once rested and acclimated, the team plans to climb the Upper West Rib and ski from the summit via the Messner Couloir if conditions permit.
More to come on this exciting climb and renewal of the USAF 50 Summits Challenge! In addition to this website, you can also follow the updates via their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/USAF50Summits
