Pat Ormond's Team

Weather depending, AMS Guide's Pat and Lisa and thier crew will be heading up to 14K today. They made a carry yesterday afternoon to 13.5K, around Windy Corner. It was super balmy (warm) yesterday. He said that his entire group was doing awesome!

First photo is a recent picture of 14,200 foot camp. I'm sure by now there are way more people in camp. In the back of the photo is "the edge of the world". Climbers usually go over there on a rest day. If the weather is clear they can see into the NorthEast Fork of the Kahiltna Glacier. You can see a trail over there in this photo.

James and group,
So good to hear that everyone is doing "awesome". I wonder what "balmy" means. It was 90 in Missouri today!
