May 22 2016 team 14 camp

Our May 18th Team is still tucked in at the big, bustling 14,200′ camp, in the broad, Genet Basin. They are camped at the upper end of a system of thick clouds, wind, and snow that has enveloped the lower mountain in recent days. We have a team above them at 17,200′, with whom they are in communication, so hopefully, the conditions higher up will be suitable for the crew to push up to High Camp.

Lead Guide Dan Starr sent a couple of pictures of the team, one shot in the sanctuary of our kitchen tent and the other outside, with 17,500′ Mount Foraker in the background.

  2. Hey dad (Craig)
    Great to see pictures! You’re looking well, we hope the weather improves. We don’t think you’ll summit we know you will! Penelope had a check up today 95th percentile 50 is average… It’s okay she’s now the height of a 2year old ?. You’ll have to come visit soon before she’s the height of a teenager haha.
    We love you and miss you!
