We heard from Greg and the Denali team on the 4th of July. Everyone’s sending home holiday wishes from America’s tallest mountain. 14K is a good place to be when the weather’s unsettled. The team’s in a holding pattern until winds and snowfall settle down and allow the team to make a safe move up to high camp. No reason to rush up to high camp if weather isn’t right. The difference between riding out a storm at 14K and riding out that same weather at 17K is night and day. Plenty of food and fuel at 14K and relatively easy to stay dug in and reasonably protected while mother nature get this out of her system.
We’ll let you know when Greg gives us an update.
