Rob DeVelice will lead "Nearer to God" with an estimated duration of 2 hours.
Meet at 6:30 pm in the Glen Alps parking area on the Anchorage Hillside. There may be two versions of the route depending on the desires of the participants. One version involves climbing a selection of steep snow slopes using crampons and ice axes (not dog friendly). The other version will avoid the need for ice axes (dog friendly).
This Epic will be in celebration of my nephew, Finn Ward, who recently passed from this life. Finn was an adventurous spirit who lived life to the fullest and loved the great outdoors and sharing it with his friends.The Chugach Front Range
