May 15 Denali Team Moved To Camp 2

Lead Guide Josh Garner called in a report on the team’s move up past the top of the Kahiltna Glacier.  They hiked heavy loads about 4.5 miles up glacier in pretty tough weather, as clouds, snow and wind poured along the Kahiltna.  As they climbed higher, they rose above much of the weather as they pulled into the very pretty basin that will be their Camp 2 on Denali.

Everyone is doing well and they are looking forward to tomorrow’s relatively easy day, following three long days of travel.  The plan is to drop back down to the cache they placed at about 10,200′ after sleeping in tomorrow morning.  It will require just a couple hours of work and afford them some time to rest and recover.

Unfortunately, Josh’s call was a bit garbled, and the shout out he gave to ??? was unintelligible.  We’ll ask him to try again in tomorrow’s update.

Here’s Josh!
