Guide Sheldon Kerr called in this afternoon at 3:30 pm AKDT. She reports a bluebird day today. The group carried about 5 days of food and supplies up to Camp 2 (high camp) just east of the saddle between Mt. Churchill and Mt. Bona at 14,300 feet. They are set! Other than a few blisters and general tiredness, the group is in excellent health. Sheldon reports some route finding to get safely up to high camp, but the group had zero crevasse falls. Sounds like the entire team is doing an excellent job! They will continue to take it a day at a time and will take a rest day as needed, but are maximizing use of the good days while they last.
