Spc. Scott Skipper, a health care specialist with 1st Battalion, 5th Infantry Regiment, 1st Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division, carries supplies at Kahiltna Glacier Base Camp May 21, 2014. Skipper is a member of the Fort Wainwright- based 1/25 SBCT climbing team. The team began their ascent to the summit of Mount McKinley, which at 20,320 feet, is the tallest mountain in North America. The team is prepared to spend 14-21 days ascending more than 13,000 feet in some of the most severe conditions in Alaska. The expedition validates training procedures used to maintain readiness for operating in austere, high-altitude, extreme cold-weather environments. (Photo by Staff Sgt.
