May 29 Team Retrieves Cache

It was a relatively short, easy day for the May 29th Team. They descended approximately 500′ and retrieved their load of equipment and supplies from the cache. This system of caching/carrying/retrieving allows the team to systematically move the tremendous amount of equipment and supplies required for the expedition up the mountain. It also allows the team members time to acclimate.

At 14 Camp, climbers have a beautiful view of Mount Foraker, the second tallest peak in the Alaska range.


Gerard sounds in fine spirits and he sends a special hello to friends in Talkeetna. Here’s Gerard:
