Update: Tom Torkelson on Denali

We just just heard from Guide Tom Torkelson, leading AMS' first 2012 Denali, West Buttress expedition.

They DID move camp to the 9,700' camp yesterday in a bit of a clearing. Right now, it is stormy at 9,700' on the Kahiltna Glacier (similar to the video in our previous entry). They are digging out their camp of the new snow and will be having hot drinks when their work is done.  They are ready to move to the 11,000' camp when the weather allows.

They are in good spirits and feeling strong.

Tom's team is camped just below Kahiltna Pass at 9,700'
