AMS team lead by Todd Tumolo has reached 14,200 foot camp today on a nice, clear day. They went back down to grab their cache below. Todd reports a little wind, but much calmer than before.

 Director Caitlin Palmer took these photos of 11K camp this morning on a flight around Denali checking in on the teams and conditions.

All other teams are on schedule: Stroud (5/29) is at 7,800' camp, Colby (Custom 5/26) is resting at 14K camp, Eroh (5/27) has arrived at 11K camp and is back carrying today, and Holmgren (5/18) has made it to high camp at 17,200'. Everyone is doing well!
