AAI climbers complete Mt. Challenger ascent with guide Dawn Glanc

AAI climbers Myron Allen and Adele Aldrich of Laramie, Wyoming, recently completed an ascent of Mt. Challenger in the Picket Range of Washington's North Cascades with AAI guide Dawn Glanc. This ascent was part of their Alpine Mountaineering and Technical Leadership program that took place on July 9 - 20, 2007. Here are some photos from their trip!
