Rob Gowler and Colby Coombs Teams

Colby just phoned in from the base of "Ski Hill" at 7,800'.

Both he and Rob are settled into camp there and are doing GREAT! The move to the base of "Ski Hill" is often a heavy one, as climbers are starting off with all of their gear in one big push. From here on out they will carry loads up the mountain.

This is what they are looking at today:
An AMS camp at the base of Ski Hill, 7800', Kahiltna Glacier, looking up at " Ski Hill", the route for the next day.

Looking east from the 7,800' Camp. Toward the North East Fork of the Kahiltna Glacier and the West Face of Denali.
