wednesday

Photo of a group nearing the camp at the base of Ski Hill. This camp that is pictured here, is actually camped about 1/4 mile before the good camp spots. As you can see they are camped in a bit of a rollover in the glacier. You can expect to find more crevasses on rollovers. The best camping is out of view in this picture. It is in the compression zone at the bottom of the hill. The glacier slows down as it runs in to the flats and crevasses get compressed together.

Phil Ershler's AMS/IMG Denali expedition is at the bottom of Ski Hill. Haven't heard from him but I got an update from a SPOT on his team. This means that they should be making a carry tomorrow to the top of ski hill. The weather still looks awesome up there.

I heard from Nate Opp of the Upper West Rib expedition yesterday, He said they were doing fine and didn't have much of anything to report.

IF anyone calls with updates, we'll update. If no one calls we don't.
