AMS Denali Update

We have heard from both our Denali Teams once again!

AMS/IMG Guide Greg Vernovage's Team spent last night at 14,200' camp, yesterday they enjoyed the wonderful views and relaxed in camp.  They plan to enjoy their descent tonight, taking it slow and steady.  They have fresh snow to break trail through for part of the descent, so they will be taking their time, and enjoying the beautiful weather.  The all night descent is one of my favorite times of the expedition!

AMS Guide Rob Gowler's Team is at 17,200' high camp.  They plan to rest today and evaluate the snow pack on Denali Pass before they ascend.  They are no doubt getting excited to make they way higher.  UPDATE!  Rob just phoned in: Winds are moving at about 30 mph in camp and it looks like the winds are faster and higher elevations, so the team had a nice frech toast breakfast today and are enjoying life in the winds 17,200'.  They have a good camp and are quite comfortable, all are well!

The view from Talkeetna, the weather is stellar today!
