Adrian Y

CFSBK would like to send our best wishes to Adrian Y as he attempts to climb the highest point in the western hemisphere, Denali. Some of the challenges he'll endure are sub zero temperatures, high altitude adjustments, carrying 45lbs on his back and dragging a 65lb sled behind him.  He'll also have to navigate an unforgiving terrain and perform lots of technical camping.  Adrian has been training at SBK for over 6 months in preparation for the 3 week climb.  Good luck, A-man!
