DAY 11 18/05/2015 GETTING CLOSER TO GREAT GLACIER!
Again great conditions here in Stikine with a beautiful weather. On the way we could have seen an optional exit point called Patterson in case we could not go out either in Le Conte or Great glacier.
We kept in mind to exit in Great glacier because it is Stikine's southern most piece of ice. So we skied for 12 hours and about 30 km. We really wanted to set camp near by our next challenge for the next day, the technical descent towards Great glacier going down from 1900-1600m almost back to sea level. Steep mountains!!
