June 24 Team Checks in from Camp 1

Lead Guide Pablo Puruncajas called in from 7,800′, the site of the team’s Camp 1 on the immense Kahiltna Glacier.  They made good time moving up from Base Camp, covering the five miles in about five hours.  This is a tough day, with climbers loaded down with all the food, fuel and supplies for a 3-week expedition.

Tomorrow, they will climb higher and deposit roughly half of their sullpies at around 10,000′ before dropping back down to 7,800′ to spend the night.

Here’s Pablo!
