Day 1 - Remote, Piluk, Old Pierre and Skayuk Peaks
(June 16) The party was dropped off by air on the Piluk Glacier, at the south end of the icefield. The start of our trip wasn't too bad. After we got dropped off we made our way to Piluk Glacier, where we had a small lunch and left our overnight packs down, and used summit packs to ascend our first peak of this trip - Remote Peak.

Once we got to the packs none of us were excited about getting those packs on our backs,but after some food we started our push to the col of Old Pierre and Skayuk Peak.
