Day 1 of your trip, on the ground at Kahiltna Base Camp, 7,200 feet on the Southeast Fork of the Kahiltna Glacier. Looking down the landing strip toward the main Kahiltna Glacier. Mount Crosson is the peak in the background. You begin your trek up the West Buttress by walking down the hill - it's called "Heartbreak Hill" for the experience that you'll have on the way back up at the end of your trip - and turning right to begin the slog up the Kahiltna Glacier.
