IMG guide Sheldon Kerr called in twice yesterday. They got down to basecamp the evening on May 26 after all members of the team summited the day prior. All are well and were waiting for the bush pilot to come and pick them up. Pickup of the team will either happen late on the 27th or the morning of the 28th, weather permitting.
It sounds like the entire team is feeling healthy, happy and proud of their accomplishments, as they should.
Congratulations to them!
Update: The team ended up being flown off late on the 27th and were flown to the Chitina landing strip. From there they shuttled to Anchorage in the wee hours of the morning. They’re likely trickling out of bed now and making some breakfast plans.
