IMG partner Phil Ershler called down on the sat phone from 14,000 to say that everything was going well for our team on Denali. Tomorrow they are planning to do a carry up to 17,000 feet. We have a couple other IMG guides, Eben Reckord and Greg Vernovage, also on the mountain right now, guiding trips for AMS, while Aaron Mainer and Mike Hamill came off recently with their Denali teams. Mike mentioned that he had just caught a 23 pound king salmon on light gear during his post-climb fishing expedition!
