Denali Team 4 - Dispatch #2

Denali Team 4: May 30 - June 19, 2010

Guides: Dylan Taylor, Jeremy Ellison, Tom Kirby

Climbers: Paul Hameister (Black Rock, Australia), Martin Perry (Melbourne, Australia), Tim Myall (Witney, England), Andy Sweet (San Marcos, California), Brian Plaugher (Guerneville, California), Jay Jackson (Reading, Pennsylvania), Dimitri Nichiporov (Bloomington, Indiana), Respicius Baitwa (Moshi, Tanzania), and Siggi Soleyjarson (Gardabae, Iceland).

Lead guide Dylan Taylor called and left the following dispatch at 5:36 pm, Pacific time on Tuesday, June 1st.


(The sat phone transmission was very uneven, but here is what we’ve gathered:)

"We’re at Camp One right now.  It took 5 hours to get here, which is pretty fast!  The glacier is in good shape.  Our team is doing quite well; everyone seems fast, comfortable, and motivated.  Nine healthy people!

We’ve been waking up super early to catch cool temperatures. There is so much solar radiation that it is practically t-shirt weather.


That is all for now! We’ll talk tomorrow!"
