June 22 team heading for the Summit!

They woke up to a beautiful windless morning at high camp this morning and are finishing up their coffee and heading for the summit.  It will likely take them 6-9 hours to reach the summit today, and we hope to get a call from them on the top.

Weather Day at high camp

The June 22nd team is ready to go for the summit, but the weather just isn’t cooperating.   It is a pretty clear day, but the winds are blowing hard up there right now and they are sitting tight in camp.  It needs to be a pretty decent day for them to push up to 20,320…

Long trip down the mountain

The June 19 team is heading down the mountain tonight, and if the weather cooperates they hope to be in base camp tomorrow.   It’s been an almost perfect trip for them, weather-wise, so let’s hope their luck holds out.   They hope to be traveling down thru the lower Kahiltna glacier during the early morning hours…

June 26th Crew up to Camp 3

The team moved up to Camp 3 today at 14,200 ft.  Sounds like they had a great day, and everybody is doing great.   They will be here for the next several nights acclimating and preparing to move up to high camp.
