Two more Denali Teams Head to the Summit!

We just got a call from our guide Ian Nicholson, from our June 2nd team.  His group is packing up to head to the summit as I type.

Greg, Joe and Josh from our second May 30th team left high camp about five minutes ago and are walking towards the base of the long, rising traverse that leads to Denali Pass, known as the Autobahn.  Conditions, as reported by our team that summitted yesterday, are really good, with nice snow for cramponing on the Autobahn.  Temperatures in the sun at high camp are very warm, with T-shirts being mentioned by the team.  It will be cooler in the shade, when climbing the Autobahn, but it looks like a beautiful day to go for a hike to the top of North America!

This shows the route from just outside High Camp to the summit.  The dotted line is where the route zig zags past Zebra Rocks and across the "Speed Bumps"
