June 12 team- holding in Talkeetna

The team traveled to Talkeetna and checked in with Park Service, weighed their bags at the air taxi service and filled their water bottles, but the weather didn’t cooperate and they spent the first night of their trip in Talkeetna.  Guides call this the ‘hurry up and wait’ attitude, and it is a theme to many a mountaineering expedition.  It means that you have to make sure you do everything you can to be ready to catch that weather window, but the go/no go call is ultimately up to the weather.
