May 16th Denali Team Waiting out the weather

They team is still hanging tight in camp at 14,000ft waiting out this long stretch of wind and snowy weather.   They spent the day practicing some mountaineering skills on a steeper hill just out of camp.   They practiced using the rope in running belays, and passing anchors, which are skills that they’ll put to use on the way to high camp and on summit day.   They are in good spirits, but the weather is testing the patience of climbers all across the Alaska Range right now.   Weather is still forecast to improve Sunday night into Monday.
