Video: Lonnie Dupre Approches Base Camp on Mt. Hunter

One of the winter climbs that we’ll be following closely in the days ahead is Lonnie Dupre’s attempt to summit Mt. Hunter in Alaska. Yesterday, he arrived in Base Camp, having been delivered there by bush plane. He also posted this video of the approach so you can get an idea of what he’ll be facing in the days ahead. Hunter is a technically difficult mountain to climb, and as you can see there is plenty of snow to contend with too. This isn’t going to be easy, but that’s why he’s doing it. More updates to come soon.
