JUNE 15 DENALI TEAM CACHES AT 16,400 FT

Anis called in to report that the team cached food and equipment at 16,400 ft today. Sounds like the weather was nice and Anis reports that the whole team is doing great. As the team left the comfort of 14,000 Camp, they immediately started gaining elevation and at about 15,500 ft they clipped into several sections of fixed lines. The Headwall, as this section is known, is approximately 600 feet and is a challenge for climbers carrying heavy packs. However, the amazing views and the fun ridge climb beginning at the top of the Headwall are well worth the effort. After the big day today, the team will have a rest day tomorrow in order to rest, hydrate, and get ready for the move to High Camp.

Here is Anis:
