As planned, the route is 80km+ long with 3 river crossings. Once past Tinayguk river, we are committed to making the pickup point, as there are no alternative routes.
Both grizzly and black bears are present in the area. Carrying a firearm is not possible due to bureaucracy. Bear spray should be sufficient. Also tried to find flares in Fairbanks, but couldn’t.
Possible Technical Sections
Most of the area we’re visiting is very steep hills which may not be passable on foot, so detour options may be limited. Furthermore, the 63k maps make it hard to predict how easy a certain section will turn out to be. In case we’re stuck against a moderate technical obstacle, we took a rope and a set of harnesses.
