Lead guide Aaron Mainer called in from Camp 1 at 5pm PDT on April 26. All is well, the team made the move to Camp 1 in good weather today. If the weather is good tomorrow the team will make a push up on the mountain to check the route and conditions for a potential summit climb. If conditions are good and they can summit Mt. Jarvis early, then they can turn their sights on another objective, such as Mt. Wrangell. They don’t want to count their chickens before they hatch, though. First things first, they’ll focus on Mt. Jarvis until they get a good weather window and can go for the summit.
