For Colin: we are listening to the updates of your "hiking" ;-) trip from a cold and rainy Zurich. Perhaps not as cold as it is for you.
Good luck, we're following you!
Best from the Swiss Family Gailey.

Greetings Super P & Team 4 -

Wow, no bonbons! And you, P, the lead guide? Chad, the gourmet chef? And Quino being so lovely....? Ya'll should have an ample supply ~ but no worries. We've got your backside. K-2 has agreed to deliver heaps of bonbons and dancing girls to 14,000. Hot showers await too! So, again, God Speed ~ Chateau Denali delivers!

Safe going everyone & God bless you & Team 4 Paul.

Much love, Jeanne

Hi Colin,

Thanks for the shout out from 11,000 ft! Glad you and the rest of Denali Team 4 are climbing well and are in great spirits. We'll be thinking of you as we lie on the beach tomorrow. Much love, Q and Alex.
