Our remaining three IMG Denali teams are each following a different strategy, to be flexible with the weather and their respective capabilities. Denali is currently getting hit by a weather system that is bringing snow and wind to the Alaska Range. Dallas and his Team 5 were feeling strong and moved to 17 Camp Tuesday, all reached the summit Wednesday, then descended back to 14 Camp to stay ahead of the weather. Nicole and her Team 6 decided to hold up at 14 Camp and take a few more days for acclimatization, before they move up to take their shot. Finally, Andy and the Team 7 moved up from 11 Camp yesterday, in order to get into 14 Camp before the wind and snow started. Now, all three teams are together at 14, hanging out waiting for the storm to dissipate, before continuing on their different strategies. Welcome to the Denali chess match. All’s well on The Great One!
