Russell Hunter is at the 7,200 foot Kahiltna base camp with John and Hal. They should be first on the list to fly out this morning. They've been up there awhile and I'm sure they looking to be back in the green zone!
Rob Gowler's team flew in to base camp yesterday evening and the report from Rob is, "conditions are splitter, glacier freezing and in good shape." Splitter means perfect.
