"Pretty Damn Hot Up Here"

The 14,200 foot base camp on Denali becomes an international city during climbing season. That's Mount Hunter (14,500ft) in the background.

The Gowler Report:

Rob Gowler just called in from the 14,000 foot camp where the team just arrived. It is a blue bird day up there but hot. Everybody is "super good." They will rest tomorrow and maybe move gear up higher.

Vernovage/D'Alesio's Team Czech along with Phil Ershler's team should be pulling into 14K camp today or tomorrow....perhaps they will phone in for a direct report.

Melis' team left 14K at 8:00 am this morning and should be pulling into high camp right about now.

Down here at 370 foot AMS base camp: the sun is shining and things are drying out. Butterball is lazing in the warm grass and I'm thinking about a cold beer.
