Albert C. called in a nice post from Team Fubar’s Camp 1 at 7,800 feet on the broad Kahiltna Glacier. Today, the team carried supplies higher on the mountain, dug a deep pit in the snow, and buried those supplies. This is called “making a cache or caching” in expedition parlance.
The hike to the cache spot took several hours and climbed up roughly 2,400′ of elevation, much of which was gained immediately out of Camp 1, by climbing Ski Hill to about 9,500′.
From 9,500′ to the cache site, the glacier is pretty mellow, with moderate hills to climb. This is not to say it was easy going, because the team had to battle through a foot of new snow, on top of additional snow that fell in previous days. It was a hard earned day.
