Ric, Janet and Darsie Beck (center), outside the Haines, Alaska office of the Alaska Mountain School, now called Alaska Mountain Guides and Climbing School. Darsie is one of the owners.

In May of ’99, we took a 5 day mountaineering course from Darsie and his partner, Sean Gaffney. We did all the work at the base of Davidson Glacier, the weather being too bad to take a ski plane further up in the mountains. We had a blast. We learned a lot and had a bunch of fun. Glacier travel, ice climbing, rapelling, prusik climbing, etc.
