Kongakut River Points
The old take out airstrip is here on the river right tundra bench but erosion has taken much of it away and planes will not take off with loads from it any more. For the take out you now have to float a mile downstream and stop on river left at the gravel bar landing area. Most groups camp above then get up early throw everything in loose and float the short distance to where the strip is. It is usually marked with orange surveyors tape.
Charter a wheel plane to drop you off here.
Even if one makes it to Icy Reef the threat of being stranded by ice fog is high and planes will not be able to land and pick you up. It is recommended to have extra days built into your schedule if you plan on going to the coast. This is in case the ground fog makes pickup by plane impossible.
