May 14 Team Arrives at Camp 2

Florian updates us from Camp 2, at 11,200′ (3413m). The team successfully moved from Camp 1 to Camp 2 yesterday. They started their morning ascending 1,200′ (365m) up Ski Hill onto the rolling hills of the glacier above Ski Hill, below Kahiltna Pass. Their route takes them past their cache site and jogs to the climbers right onto a glacial base below some awe inspiring seracs (a block of ice among crevasses on a glacier, often in an ice fall or below a “hanging” glacier) at the base of Motorcycle Hill where Camp 2 lies. The team traveled 4 miles today and ascended 3,400′ (1036m). They plan to retrieve their cache today from their site at 10,200′ (3108m) and may spend some time reviewing technical skills like ice ax and crampon use, as soon they will be stashing their snowshoes and trading in for crampons soon as they continue to ascend the mountain.


Keep up the good work!
