Denali Team 7: June 10 to June 30 (private) - Dispatch #3

Guides: Richard Riquelme, Ben Gardner, David Farkas

Climbers: Guy Munnoch, John Moorhouse, Andrew Jenkins, Andrew May, Sid Ratnavelu, Graham Dawson, Jeremy Middleton

Richard called at 10:30 am PST with the following dispatch:

The team is settled in at Denali basecamp.  Everyone is doing well and happy to be on the mountain.  This morning we had a leisurely breakfast and we're getting ready to practice skills today.  People are slowly getting adjusted to local time and we are working on shifting our schedule so we can begin moving at night.  Temperatures are warm and the snow is soft during the day.  It has been snowing since last night and basecamp has received 2-3 inches of new snow.  We will get to bed early today and begin moving higher tonight.
 

Graham says,  "Hi Sally,  I love you and take care."

Sid says,  "Hi Lucy!"

Guy says, "Happy brithday to my darling wife."
