New snow coming down right now. Snow down to Soulsbyville. Sticking at Twain Harte 4800'.


It was sticking at my office in Sonora when I left there an hour ago.

The AAC has been incredibly generous this year with the Live Your Dream grants in our section (https://americanalpineclub.org/2017recipients) . With the matching funds from local organizations like Touchstone more and more members have had the opportunity to live out their dreams.

Julian and I have  got another LYD grant from the AAC this year. This time we are planning a trip to Alaska. We have had big trips in the last few years preparing for something larger. Heavy loads, unclimbed walls, bears. This time we get it all in one trip. Long approach, mosquitos, grizzlies, bushwhacking, loose rock, and a real unclimbed peak.


We have a lot of our kit together already, but are still raising funds for the multiple flights to get there. The peak isn't the biggest but the adventure to get there will be the biggest that either of us has ever undertaken.

Important things we have:
Bear protection
Bear Canister
InReach Explorer
Sat Phone
Etc, etc. etc

We are looking for a few things still:
Mini Mid (light weight cook tent)
Additional bear proof food storage (we will have 2 canisters but will need some sort of storage for food after we get food air dropped. A friend mentioned smell proof bags under rock piles.
Whisperlite stove and fuel cans
Any ultra light cams etc We have multiple racks of gear but its heavy for our weak spines ;)
Anything else you might be willing to loan to us that could be of help.
Favorite Alaska Fly pattern

We are also doing a small fundraiser to help with flight costs.

Thanks in advance for any help, advice, gear you might have.
Happy Climbing!
John
