Greg Vernovage called in this morning from 14K on Denali. Weather has improved and the team is on their way to high camp. It’ll be a long day. This is maybe as important as the actual summit day. They need to get to high camp in good shape and ready for one more big day. Once they weigh the weather forecast and the see how everyone is feeling, the team will have to decide whether a rest day at high camp is appropriate or whether it’s time to climb. Sometimes is a function of “if the fish are running, it’s time to go fishing.” We likely won’t know until tomorrow but will post the news when available. Excitement levels are running high.
