AAI lead Denali Guide Forest McBrian just called in. He indicated that it has been clear and cold and that the conditions are great for moving on the glacier.
Last night the team had Indian night. They ate cooked spicy coconut rice and chicken and everybody was very happy and full.
Today they going to do a carry up around Windy Corner to 13,000 feet. This is a big day, but the team is very strong and everyone is in good spirits.
The team was very interested in finding out who the new British Prime Minister might be. And as you all probably know, it's still up in the air...
