2011 Shipton-Tilman Award: Heading to the Hayes

The folks at Gore-Tex contacted me this morning to let me know that we have won a 2011 Shipton-Tilman award for our proposed attempt on Mount Moffit in the Hayes Range out in the Fairbanks backyard. My longtime friend and climbing partner Jeremy Frimer will be accompanying me in place of Clint Helander, who hopes to be out commercial fishing when we planned to be out climbing. Jer just hurt his wrist so sending all positive vibes his way in the hopes that he is healed up and can go climbing this summer. Here are links to wikipedia info about Eric Shipton and William Tilman, pioneer explorers and mountaineers.
