Weather hold for June 26th team

They woke up to wind and snow again this morning, and weren’t able to try for the top today.  The wind settled down a bit this afternoon around the 17,000 ft level where they are camped, but it continued to blow above them.   Tomorrow they’ll do it all again and hope for a better day.

Ski team back in Talkeetna!

Our friends at Talkeetna Air Taxi flew into base camp and picked up our crew just a short time ago.  They are all back in Talkeetna now and heading over to the Road House for one of their legendary breakfasts!

Rest day for June 26 crew

They had a day to rest, recover, and acclimate today at 17,200 ft.   It was snowing for much of the day, so it was a good day to relax.  They are hoping for a nice morning tomorrow for a shot at the summit!

June 28 team at Camp 3

They had a bit of snow today, but they were able to carry loads of food and fuel up to the ridge at 16,400 ft today.  This is often a pretty difficult and physical day and everybody did really well.   They are set up now to move up to high camp after a recovery day…

Ski Team at 7,800 ft

Durny called in from 7,800 ft tonight where they are waiting for a good freeze so they can head down to base camp.  They still hope to be able to move tonight after it cools off.

Here’s Durny.
