Denali Team 5: May 29 – June 18
"Hello this is Dustin calling from high camp at 17,000 feet. We got here yesterday. It was a long climb and pretty tough, but everyone did great. Everyone is in good spirits and good health, and we are very ready for our summit bid tomorrow.
The weather has been fantastic up high. There are some clouds down below us – covering the lower glacier, but they seem to be happy where they are and are statying put. We’re crossing our fingers that the weather stays good.
I have three messages:
Mark day says, ‘Hi Kris! I’m having a fantastic time. Keep you fingers crossed for good weather tomorrow. The scenery here is magnificent.’
David says, ‘Hello family, friends, and colleagues at AMEC [?]. Hope you are all well.’
Rishi says, ‘Getting here at 17,000 feet was tough, but I’m felling better now. I send lots of love to every one back home.’
Well that’s it for now. We wish you could see what we are seeing. OK, wish us luck. We'll give you a call tomorrow.”
