Camp 1

The kids have been very fortunate to have great weather for the past few days.   Yesterday they left very early in the morning to climb to their first camp at 2,400m/7,800'.  On this mountain their are no sherpas or porters like on some of the other mountains and they are not being supported by a climbing company so they have to be completely self sufficient.  They carry a large pack, pull a toboggan and set up caches en route.
The following picture is from the Talkeena Air Taxi webcam.
