Paul called in to summarize their final days on Denali. Team members Amber and Serena and Guide Quino, split up from the rest of the team and were able to get up around 17K' on a summit attempt, but had to turn around around 17K' due to high winds. Meanwhile, the rest of the team guided by Paul descended a day earlier. Everyone is now back down and off the mountain. Team 1 celebrated their hard work with some delicious local fare in Talkeetna.
