Denali Team 2: May 8 - 28, 2011 Dispatch #4

Denali Team 2:  May 8 - 28, 2011
Guide:  Richard Riquelme and Mary Harlan
Climbers:  Claire Morrissey (London, UK), Stephen Baldock (Washington State), and Johnna Haskel (Maine)

“Hello! This is Mary! It’s all smiles today and everyone is doing great. We’ve now at 11,200 feet. We had perfect weather yesterday. In fact, it got pretty hot during the hike! As soon as we reached 10, 400 feet, we had to layer up because it turned very, very cold. But, we sucked it up and pushed through. We got in at about 10:30 pm last night. It may seem like slow progress, but it’s not due to team effort. Everyone is moving efficiently and very well. It’s just the weather that keeps us back sometimes. We’ve had a late start this morning….”

At that point, we lost connection. We hope to hear back soon.
