Michael updates us after some snow camp cheesecake! Teams on Denali are experiencing warm and sunny weather in this extended high pressure system. Today the team left Camp 2 at 11,200′ (3413m) and descended to their cache site at 10,200′ (3108m). They dug up their supplies, loaded them into their packs, and marched back up to Camp 2. This only takes a couple of hours or so from their day. It sounds like after their short jaunt, the team was able to enjoy some sunshine. Even though they are snow camping, a calm day with a bright sun can feel like shorts and sunbathing weather on Denali! It is not uncommon to pull out a foam mat and set oneself up a little lounge chair in the sunshine with a book or a journal. The team may have also used this active rest day to practice their ice ax and crampon skills, as leaving Camp 2 the mountain will become more difficult and steeper and the team will need to employ these tools.
