Just got word from Andrés. He and Chuck flew off the Root Canal to Talkeetna this morning. Great news! So happy they have made it to Talkeetna safely.
Andrés and Chuck doing fine in the Root Canal, they are waiting a good weather window to fly out.
All is well in the Root Canal with Andrés and Chuck. They attempted the Route Shaken Not Stirred on the Moose’s Tooth. Conditions were too warm to complete the climb. Their plan is to fly out of the glacier today. Will update once they are safe and sound in Talkeetna.
Received word from Andrés this evening. He and Chuck had a terrific climb to the summit of the Moose’s Tooth via the Ham n’ Eggs Route today. Full moon ascent. Cheers to them for the great effort. Tomorrow (5/5) they will rest up and decide what’s on tap next.
Here is a photo from an expedition last year to the Moose’s Tooth. Mark Miller guiding Ham n’ Eggs. Tributes to Mark as he dearly loved climbing in Alaska.
Our second expedition of the season to the Moose’s Tooth Formation (10,335 ft.) in the Central Alaska Range kicked off yesterday. Again, led by our senior guide Andrés Marín who is partnered with Chuck. The team flew into the Root Canal Glacier yesterday and established camp. Today (5/4) they will have a skills practice day and check out the route from below. Their main climbing objective is the classic Ham n’ Eggs (V, 5.9, AI 4) mixed, snow & ice route which is the prominent line to the summit of the Moose’s Tooth. The route is 18 pitches and has 2,900 feet of climbing to the glorious summit which has incredible views of Denali, Foraker, Hunter and Huntington. We wish Andrés and Chuck an awesome time in the Root Canal and all the best in their journey on Ham n’ Eggs. Stayed tuned for trip updates.
Gary and Matthew had a great climb of Mt. Barille. They have returned to Talkeetna. Stay tuned for trip report and photos once Gary returns home.
Gary and Matthew are doing excellent in the Ruth Gorge. Yesterday (4/28) they climb the West Ridge of Mt. Dickey. Today (4/29) they had a skills training day around base camp. They are potentially looking towards a climb of Mt. Barille soon. We will keep you posted as we get word. Glad they are having a wonderful time in the Alaska Range.

Both trips in the Alaska Range are doing great.
