Denali Team 7: June 12 to July 2 Dispatch #4

Denali Team 7: June 12 to July 2

Guides: Chantel Astorga, Mike Pond, and Mat Erpelding

Climbers: Leslie Brown (Washington), Darren Wise (Australia), Shane Pophfer (Australia), Khai Nguyen (California), Denis Levin (Australia), Andrew Sargant (Australia), Erik Akerberg (Sweden), Neill Johanson (Australia), and Dale Wagner (Utah).

Mat called at 2:45 pm on June 17th with this dispatch:

“Hi! This is Mat calling for Team 7. We did a single carry to 9,500 feet today. It went very well and we set up Camp 1 for the night. It’s really beautiful right now. We’re a little behind schedule – maybe that should be our team name. Hopefully we’ll have great weather and won’t have any more hold ups. We’ll call again tomorrow. Everyone says hello.”

Hey Team 7; my name suggestions would be: "Jouyrney of the Little Penguins" or "Zombie Hunters on Denali".
