Afternoon Report

AMS Guide Rob Gowler called in from high camp on Denali at 17,200' where his team is hanging out and doing well. It is still "super windy" so they will wait for a better day. AMS Guide, Greg Vernovage and his team, and the IMG/AMS team with guide Phil Ershler have moved 14K. They will be back in base camp tomorrow morning, and Talkeetna shortly thereafter weather permitting, of course.

AMS Instructor Josh Hoeshen called in from the Pika Glacier with a report from the Denali Challenge/prep course. They are having an awesome time despite the challenging weather. I asked him if it was snowing or raining there and his answer was, "yes." All are learning new things and eating well.
