It’s cold up there

No doubts- high camp is a cold place to be, and the team members are undoubtedly wearing all of their down clothing and zippering their sleeping bags shut tight, and drinking lots of hot drinks to combat the chill.  Jacob led a rope team up to Denali pass to prepare the slope for a summit bid; all in all they put in twelve pickets in from their own gear stores and located many more left in the icy slope from last season.  This allows rope teams to clip into at least one solid piece of gear as they traverse up to Denali pass as a safety measure.  The plan is to attempt a summit today if conditions allow, although the weather forecast isn’t predicting weather that is suitable for a good shot at the summit.
