MAY 30 TEAM AT CAMP 2 11,200′

Peter called in the team report today. He speaks of poor weather and windy,snowy conditions. The team tried to pick up a cache of equipment and supplies that they left buried on the glacier the day before, but as the team was forced to turn back to camp due to the weather. Everyone is safe and sound back at camp, and Yoshi prepared a delicious dinner for the team.

Camp 2

11,200′ camp is located in the basin in the center of this image, taken from the peak called Kahiltna Dome, on the W. side if the Kahiltna Glacier, at bottom. The West Buttress is the prominent rocky feature above camp. Motorcycle Hill is in the shade immediately above camp, and the big hanging glacier at right is the Upper Peters Glacier.
