Team Japan 8 8 at High Camp

Yesterday was a stormy day at High Camp for Team Japan 8 8. Guide Eli Potter reports strong winds again today, but clear skies. It sounds like Mr. Matsumotosan has developed altitude sickness and will be descending with a guide to lower elevation. The team will be monitoring the weather closely, and if given an opportunity, they will continue ascending. Unfortunately part of the trip dispatch is cut off, which happens frequently with satellite communication in the mountains.


Climbers on the Autobahn, the steep traverse that leads up from High Camp to the col (saddle) between the North and South summits of Denali. Mount Foraker in the background.

Here’s Eli and Keizo:
