The June 23 team called in to let us know that they are following the wave of climb teams that are cutting their losses on a summit bid and beginning the descent back to Denali base camp 7,200 ft ( 2194 m). As another storm rolls in this is the best decision for the team in terms of safety, resources, and time. But, not all is lost! Our friends have been dining on gyros, instant coffee, are all happy to be heading back to see family soon! We wish them luck on the descent and can’t wait to hear how it goes!
