Hoeschen does it again!
Josh Hoeschen called in around 6 PM from the summit. I'm not sure what time they left camp this morning, but 6 PM on the top is SWEET!
Russell Hunter is at 14 K right now. I just got off the phone with him and he said he'll either continue down toward base camp through the night or take more of a rest and head down tomorrow night.
Summit day on Denali is one of the hardest endeavors there is. To tack on a 10,000 foot descent the following day is very hard work. So, we'll either see Russell tomorrow or the next day. And of course everything is weather dependent.
