AMS Denali Team's are Checking in: Tumolo and Corn

AMS Guide Todd Tumolo just phoned in from 11,000' camp on Denali.  He and his team are doing well, they back carried today to get their previously caches food fuel and gear.  Back carry days often feel like rest days to most Denali climbers, they don't take to much time and you start the day descending.  Tomorrow, they plan to carry to 13,500', just past Windy Corner.

Todd reported that the AMS Denali team lead by Dan Corn departed 11,000 camp early this morning to move to the 14,200' camp, I'm sure we will be hearing directly from them as well.  Last we spoke with them they were feeling strong and ready to move higher.
