Denali Update

AMS guide Dustin English sent us a text from 14,200' camp late last night.  Yesterday, July 2, they had a good rest day at 14,200'.  On July 1st they carried and cached some of their food, fuel and equipment at 16,500' and that went well for them. Both the Wagner 6/20 and AMS/ IMG Vernovage 6/22 teams hope to move up to the 17,200' high camp today.

We wish them the best!

The teams lead by Mike Hamill and Aaron Mainer have safely arrived to Kahiltna Base Camp and are waiting for the weather to clear up enough to fly back to Talkeetna.

NEW UPDATE:
Peter Anderson's Team is waiting at 7,800' on the Kahiltna glacier as they have whiteout conditions (very snowy) today on the glacier. They hope that it clears up tonight and freezes so that they can quickly travel to Kahiltna Basecamp tonight, and fly out in the morning....weather permitting as always. And as many of you know, plans do seem to change often when climbing Denali so we will keep you as up to date as possible.

We are very excited to welcome them all back and hear their stories from the mountain.

Cheers,
Caitlin
