McNeill Nott Award
I was recently awarded the McNeill-Nott Award from the American Alpine Club and Mountain Hardwear. This grant will fund a trip to the Northern BC Coast Mountains near Bella Coola. Mike Pond, Matt Van Biene, Eric Dalzell, and I will attempt the first ascent of a rock and snow ridge. Our plan is to head in mid July, and be home sometime in the first few days of August. We get to fly into our basecamp too! Should be fun! A bigger, nicer helicopter for passenger travel than Mountain Rescue, too. We'll even get seats in this bird! Oooh! Deeeluxe.
