IMG leaders Nicole Sims and Dallas Glass report that their respective teams are doing well, and have been making good progress. They have been moving at “night” which is a bit of a misnomer since it is never dark in Alaska this time of year. Their goal down low on the mountain is to move while the snow is firm and before the sun climbs above Denali and starts to cook. Both teams are now at the 9800 ft camp, heading up to 11,000 shortly. The weather on Denali recently has been good for climbers, with one more day expected before the next front comes in. So far so good on Denali!
