Denali Team 2: May 8 – 28 Dispatch #11

Guides:  Richard Riquelme and Mary Harlan
Climbers:  Claire Morrissey (London, UK), Stephen Baldock (Washington State), and Johnna Haskel (Maine)

Richard Riquelme called in with a dispatch at 10:15 am on May 23th:

“Hello! Good news and bad news -- Today we had the first break in the weather for us after a very long time of sitting around. However, the weather forecast is not looking good for the next couple of days. Yesterday we had 50 to 60 mph winds. We’ve been stuck at 14-camp for so long, we had to have a group meeting. We came to the conclusion that we need to go down. We’ll call back shortly with an update on our progress. For now, that’s the plan.”
