Yesterday the team cached supplies at about 10,000 ft. near Kahiltna Pass, in preparation for moving up to Camp 2. The day started off mild, with low cloud and some fog, and the team hauled sleds to the cache point. After completing the cache, they began the descent in worsening weather. By the time they arrived back at camp around 5:00 PM, the wind had stiffened and snow was accumulating. The guides prepared a hearty meal of spaghetti with tomato/meat sauce.
After dinner, the guides listened to the weather report from Base Camp. With snow and rising wind forecast for the next two days, they decided to hold in camp and wait for a break.
