Denali Team 3 - On Kahiltna Glacier

Denali Team 3: May 23 - June 12, 2010
Guides: Angela Seidling, Alaina Robertson

Climbers: Paul Rose, Joan Clofent, Paul Watkins, Carol Masheter, Simon Boaz, Bob Sullivan

Sunday, May 23, 10:46 pm Pacific time

Lead Guide Angela Seidling called with this dispatch:

"This is Angela calling from the Kahiltna Glacier. Today we finished our business in Talkeetna and flew onto the glacier early in the afternoon. The weather was beautiful and it was a spectacular flight. We spent the afternoon going over roped glacier travel and sled rigging ... had hamburgers for dinner ... and now we're all in our tents and resting up for a long haul tomorrow. Tomorrow the plan is to move to Camp 1.

"Oh, and we're working on a team name. The creative juices are flowing ... but we haven't got anything yet. Three of our climbers have been on Denali before and three have not, so we're thinking that may figure into our name somehow ...

"Okay, that's it ... talk to you tomorrow."
