March 6 was a 14 hour, 10+ mile day, with 4000 feet of elevation gained and lost.
In early March the Outdoor Leadership class climbed Mt McGinnis and skied out the creek for a full traverse. March 6 was a 14 hour, 10+ mile day, with 4000 feet of elevation gained and lost. On March 8, the Glacier Travel and Crevasse Rescue class traversed the first icefall of the Mendenhall Glacier, from the toe through the first icefall to top of the West Glacier Trail. This traverse has only been done once before, reports ODS Program Director Forest Wagner. “I’m especially proud of these efforts and of the amazing students we have in outdoor studies,” said Wagner.
