Upper Mountain Denali Team Update

AMS guide Tom Torkelson called in from 14K.  He said that his team and AMS guide Leighan Falley are planning on heading up to high camp tomorrow, weather depending.  Tom said that the weather was really starting to look good.

Tom also said the Larry Holmgren's team arrived into 14K camp last night.  Tom said that his team and Leighan's team had hot drinks waiting for them and pretty much had their entire camp built for them before they even had time to take off their crampons.  The move from 11K to 14K is a long and hard day, so to have other AMS teams waiting with snow saws and shovels to help build walls and flatten tent sites is a pretty awesome thing.
