June 13 Team – Henk Calls From Camp 1

Henk Cronje called in a salutation to his family from 7,800′ (2380m) on the broad Kahiltna Glacier.  This camp is situated about five miles (8 Km) up the glacier from Base Camp, near the base of the first significant hill on the route.  On clear days, teams are treated to an impressive view of the mountain from this camp, as it looms 12,500′ (3800m) above the Northeast Fork of the Kahiltna, which drains onto the main body of the glacier immediately to their east.

Here is Henk!
