May 11 Team at Basecamp

They May 11 team made it to Denali’s base camp yesterday afternoon! After an extra day in Talkeetna waiting for the weather to clear they got the call from Talkeetna Air Taxi to get ready to go. They loaded their massive piles of gear onto the plane again, and this time they flew right into the galcier runway on the Southeast fork of the Kahiltna glacier where their climb will begin. This evening they set up camp, ate a big dinner and got ready to start up towards Camp 1 tomorrow morning.  Everyone is excited to be on the mountain and start the hard work of climbing Denali!

Here’s our lead guide Matt Park with the evening expedition dispatch from Denali Basecamp.
