May 3 Team at Camp 1

The climbers loaded up all of their gear, clothing, food and fuel for the next 20+ days into their packs and sleds this morning for the move up to Camp 1.  These will be the biggest loads they’ll carry for the entire trip, above here they’ll be “double carrying” as well as eating through their supplies and lightening their loads. It’s about 5 miles and they’ll ultimately gain only about 600 ft of elevation at their new camp at 7800 ft on the Kahiltna glacier.

They’re doing great, click the link for the evening dispatch!  It’s a bit hard to hear tonight due to the challenges of satellite phone communications.
