Climber Steve Camkin called in the team report tonight. It sounds like the team enjoyed a restful day at 14 Camp today, taking in the stunning scenery. Situated in the beautiful Genet basin, 14 Camp offers incredible views of Mt. Foraker, Mt. Hunter, and the surrounding Alaska range. The plan is to rest tomorrow, then head up the “headwall” section of the climb to put in a cache of equipment and supplies at approximately 16,500′.
