"Hello this is Team 5 reporting that we are on the mountain. We flew onto the Kahiltna Sunday evening to beautiful views of Denali and the surrounding mountains and settled into base camp. We're spending the daylight hours arranging our gear and getting ready for our first carry to Camp 1. For the first part of this expedition we'll be avoiding activity in the daylight hours because it is quite warm her eon the lower glacier. We'll move in the evening in order to get cooler temperatures and firmer conditions in the snowpack.
Hooray for Team 5. We are sending warm wishes from Bellingham to Dustin and everyone else on the team.
This sounds like an incredible adventure. Enjoy and be safe!
Dustin - climb safely and take good care. All your family is cheering you on. Especially your little neices and nephews. Well done! Uncle Andy
Jeff - I know you are so happy on the mountains. Take pictures of beautiful nature in Alaska. Go team 5! Love, Mayumi
