Lead Guide Aidan Loehr called in notifying that Team 2 summited!

"Hey this is Aidan from AAI Denali Trip 2. It is about 2:00AM this morning.

Calling in to let everyone know that we summited in near perfect conditions. One of the few trips I have been on where everyone summited the mountain together.

We had near perfect summit day conditions. It took us about 13 and a half hours roundtrip to get back here to 17 Camp. Everyone did pretty well. We had to skip the rest day yesterday because the weather was starting to move in so everyone is pretty tired but quite happy.

We had two rope teams heading up the mountain. Only needed about 20 minutes on the summit. The weather on top was actually better than anywhere else. relatively low winds, we were experiencing 35km winds most of the way but the summit was pretty calm.

Everyone did well. There were some doubts about people maybe considering turning around but they all pulled through and we had a great time. We will hopefully be moving down to 14 today and then out the airstrip the next.

Everyone is in bed resting, I am currently making ramen and am going to go wake them up and see if they want a 2AM dinner. Talk to you all later."
