Hello TAT folks,
Thanks for another great trip -- this year brought us a stormy stay at Kahiltna base camp.
Two pictures are from our visit to what should be a new Kahiltna classic, "Bacon and Eggs" on the Mini-Mini Moonflower (ca 1,500 feet to summit, AI4, maybe 4 plus right now?), first climbed in 2008 by Westman/Walsh and Giambrone/Einerson, and at least once since by Billmeier/Vilhauer. Other climbers may be interested to know that we used only ice screws on the route, and that as of 5/18 there were large snow mushrooms threatening the last pitch to the top, where we descended using only V-threads and leaving no cord behind, making six 70 meter rappels. The other is a kind of cool shot of one of your planes flying out, taken from around "Tower 1" on the SW Ridge of Mount Frances.
Thanks again, I hope you all enjoy the rest of the summer season, see you again next go round!
