We are making a quick turn around and heading farther north to the Brooks Range which lies just north of the Arctic Circle. We will be attempting to climb some off the peaks of the Arrigetch range in the Gates of the Arctic National Park.
Last night we met up with Tobey and Cort (our partners for the trip and new residents of Fairbanks) and are making last minute preparations for the trip today. We need to be Coldfoot tomorrow to catch another ride on a Beaver (the classic bush plane of AK)
The weather forecast isn’t looking to promissing at this point but hopefully it will improve and we’ll have at least a few good days of weather to get some climbing in.
Here’s a little beta on where we are going:
