Denali Team 2: May 8 – 28 Dispatch #6
Denali Team 2: May 8 – 28
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 2:10 pm on May 16th:
Hello! This is Richard with a quick update! We are doing awesome here, as usual! This team is doing so well. Just to re-cap, yesterday we carried our cache up to 13,700 feet. Right now we are in the middle of moving to 14,000 feet and going strong. We’re currently at 12,000 feet and taking a quick break to refuel and eat some lunch. We expect to show up at ‘14 Camp’ at 5 or 6 o’ clock at the latest today. It sounds like we’ll probably see Kurt’s team near 14,000 feet or so. I’ll call and leave another message tonight when we arrive.
[Today we were able to relay some messages from the blog, as well. The Team appreciates your comments.]
