AMS Custom Denali 5/17 led by Erik Remza and Jimmy Voorhis are at 11,200', they are awaiting good weather to move higher and are posied to move up when the time is right and are doing well.
AMS 5/18 Denali led by Dustin English and Michael Gardner with Team Lebanon are camped at 11,200 camp and are hoping to carry extra food fuel and equipment to the windy corner area tomorrow, all is well with them.
AMS Custom Denali Traverse 5/21 led by Todd Tumolo and Aaron Devine are camped at 11,200' and hope to take a trip higher tomorrow to cache some extra food, fuel and gear tomorrow, its a bit windy there today, so they are hoping for a calm day. They too are all good, and took some movie footage today to share when they get home.
AMS 5/22 Denali led by Nate Opp and Scott Patch moved to 11,200' camp today and saw a large flock of Ruby Crowned Kinglets in camp, they are migrating through the Alaska Range. It's a major treat to see bird life on the glacier. The team is good spirits and feeling strong.

|Upper Kahilnta Glacier camp at 9,000', All the teams travelled through this area bewteen 7,800 and 11,200'. Colby team had an intermeidate camp here as well.|
AMS 5/25 Denali led by Noah Ronczkowski, Jeremiah Phelps and Leigh Frye are at basecamp and plan to move to camp at 7,800' during the early morning tonight/tomorrow to take advantage of the cold night temperatures and firm snow conditions. When it is sunny and clear, the days can get very hot on the glacier, so it's a good strategy to avoid moving during the heat of the day in order to conserve overall energy levels.
