May 8 Team – Weather Day at C1

The weather shut down travel on the mountain today with a foot of new snow and winds, the team spent the day in camp. These weather days are to be expected and a normal part of climbing a big mountain like Denali. The team has many extra days in their schedule to accommodate these expected delays, so they’re still doing great. They spent the day relaxing and shoveling snow to keep their tents clear, and maybe the most important part of the day, eating big meals!

Chris called in with the evening dispatch, the satellite phone drops the signal after a bit, but it’s still good to hear his call.

  1. Thank you for the updates! A day shovelling snow sounds ‘fun’ . Were they creative with the shovelling? Can’t wait to see pics as hard to envisage what it’s like up there.
