Denali Team 6: June 3 to June 23 - Dispatch #4

Guides: Mike Pond, Dustin Byrne, Tad McCrea

Climbers: Jim Bonadonna (New York), David Wain (UK), David Pritchett (UK), Todd Fletcher (Australia), Peter Menne (Germany), David Martin (Australia), Mark Mueller (California), Philip Mace (Bermuda), Brian Knowles (California)

Mike called at 11:55 am PST on 6/8 with a quick dispatch:

"Hi this is Mike.  We're hanging out at 11,000'.  We're stalled with a bit of snow and weather...." [Then he was disconnected.  He tried calling back again right after, but couldn't get anything through.]

Great to know you are making vertical progress, even though the dispatch #4 was cut short. I hope you are more comfortable with the snow and wind than I am here in Singapore with the heat and humidity.
Keep those dispatches coming! Even abbreviated by weather, it is comforting to get a report.

Wondering how you guys are going up there. Here in NZ we have lots of snow so ski season looking promising. I guess snow is the last thing you want to hear about. Have taken dogs for walk in the bush and the beach this afternoon. Sending you lots of good weather wishes so that you can get to 14. Take care Jacqui,, Bernie and Pepper. X
