Trip: Mt. Foraker - Sultana Ridge
Date: 4/27/2011

So rather than make you guys all read through pages of the same old thing, I decided I'd put together a movie instead. It ended up being about 40 minutes long, and documents the trip at a high level pretty well.

expedition climbing is less about plumbing the depths of one's soul than it is adding feces to the already-too-full shitt can one is dragging across the glacier

Alpine climbing in AK is badass. No time to watch 40 min movie right now.
Thanks for putting up climbing content!

Thanks for checking out the movie, guys... AK climbing--no matter the style--is a committing endeavor, as far as I'm concerned. I had fun climbing (obviously), but making the movie was fun, too.

Side note: the song at 23:12 is my band Trip Device from the new album we released a couple months ago. It's all over the web, including here on iTunes.
