BEGINNING THEIR CLIMB:
Our teams were at the Talkeetna Airport this morning getting gear transferred from van to plane. The IMG/AMS team lead by Greg Vernovage / Dustin English and the AMS team lead by Mike Janes and Beth Cleary flew to base camp this morning to begin their Denali climb.

Mike Hamill's Team returned from base camp after a 3 day weather delay at base camp. They did a good job patiently awaiting the weather out there on the glacier. They are happy to be back in Talkeetna and are currently enjoying fresh fruit, green leaves and warmer temperatures.
