Up in the Alaska Range the weather has improved considerably and we are happy to report that IMG lead guide Nickel Wood and his Team 4 were able to fly into Kahiltna BC this morning. They were all chomping at the bit to start climbing and were hoping to be able to move up to Camp 1 at 7800 feet later today. Ahead of them are the Team 3, who are now up at the Camp 2 at 9600 feet, and Team 1 and 2 who are at Camp 3 at 11000 doing their carries up around Windy Corner. It’s a big relief to get our first wave of expedition teams onto the mountain (we have several more teams that will be going on starting about June 10). Hopefully they all have some decent weather over the coming weeks. We’ll keep you posted!
