Lead guide Chad Cochran called in this morning.

Team 2 is at Camp 2 (11,200ft) and has retrieved their cache from 10,000ft.

The group slept in this morning and had a huge breakfast to help recover from their heavy move days on the lower mountain and prep for the big cache around Windy Corner and up to 14.

Camp 2 provides a climbing expedition it's first chance to look out of the Alaska Range between Mount Capps (10,790ft) and Kahiltna Dome (12,525ft) into Denali National Park. A welcome sight to see something green and brown instead of all white.

Weather is looking good on the horizon!
