Denali Team 1 - Dispatch #11

Denali Team 1: May 2-22, 2010

Guides: Forest McBrian and Mike Pond

Climbers: Rob Gribbin, Deke Williams, Jens Rabbels, Krushnaa Patil, Chris Shumate

Wednesday, May 15 - 12:30 pm

Lead AAI Guide Forest McBrian called in with this dispatch:

It's windy and cold and we are still at 14,000 feet. A high pressure system is expected to arrive on Sunday or Monday. We're going to try to move up to 17,000 feet tomorrow so that we are in position for the high pressure.

People are still really psyched to be here. Everybody is still taking in the scenery and most are still somewhat awestruck at the beauty of our position. But, everybody is stoked to get moving again too...

I'll give you a call tomorrow to let you know where we're at!
