Denali Team 3 - Dispatch #17

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

Lead Guide Angela Seidling called at 3:00pm Pacific time.

Angela stated that they are at 14,000 feet right now in deep new snow. Everybody is in their tents resting.

The plan is to leave camp in a few hours to head down. It has been warm during the day, so they want to move at night when it is coolest. They expect to go all night down to the airstrip.

Angela believes they will make it by morning. If they planes are flying -- which it sounds like they were not doing today in the weather – then they will fly out early tomorrow.
