Daily Update

AMS Guide Nick D'Alessio  with the 5/20 Denali WB checked in today.   The weather on the Mountain is great and the team is doing well.  They carried to 16K today,  and now they are back in camp at 14,200. They will take a rest day tomorrow, and weather permitting will move to the high camp 17,200' camp on Friday.

AMS Guide Melis Coady, leading our Foraker 5/17 expedition also called in.  Her team is happy and enjoying the climb and this great weather.  The horizontal ridge to the base of the Sultana is a climbing feat it itself with several interesting terrain challenges and this team is making the most of it.  The team is planning to moving to their high camp today and have hopes of making the summit in the next few days.

Melis' sister here - cheering for the Foraker group from NYC. So admiring of all that they've already accomplished, and all of the commitment and training it took to get this far. Awaiting the next update!
