5/21, Forest Wagner
Forest Wagner called in from 14K. They rolled in last night. The move from 11 to 14 took the group between 7 and 8 hours. Forest said they took several long breaks, since the weather was perfect they were not in any hurry. I talked to him around 11AM and they were about to do their back carry to 13.5. He said that the entire group was doing really well. They are strong, having a ton of fun, eating well and "everything is going perfectly". They are moving along right on schedule.
The team will only take about 25 minutes to get to the cache site. They'll probably hang out there for an hour or so, then head back up to camp. It's about an hour to an hour and a half back up to 14, depending on where they cached exactly. This day is pretty close to a rest day (at least compared to all of the strenuous days they have had so far).
