Denali Team 5: May 27 to June 16 - Dispatch #2

Guides: Alasdair Turner, Chad Cochran, Higinio Gonzalez

Climbers: Mary Neave (UK), James Neave (UK), Alex Round (UK), Daniel Hughes (UK), Knut Heggland (Norway), Guy Manning (Cayman Islands), Michael Rieder (Idaho)

Guide Alasdair Turner called May 29th at 9:00am PST with the following dispatch: Hi this Alasdair calling from Talkeetna. We are still waiting to fly into the glacier. We actually got up in the air and flew a bit yesterday but still couldn't get into the glacier. The glacier is plugged with clouds so they can't land. There are at least 50 people stacked up in Talkeetna waiting to fly in and it's looking promising today so hopefully we'll be calling from the Kahiltna soon.
