AAI guide Ian Mceleney called in yesterday evening to report in from Camp 1 (7,800ft/ 2,377m). Team 3 had a stormy night but woke up to a clear dawn.
For breakfast, the team had cinnamon buns and oranges. After breakfast, they packed up their gear and made a cache further up the mountain at Kahiltna Pass (~10,000ft).
It was a really good day weather-wise, being fairly hot throughout the day with really good views of the range. The team had a lot of fun! For the evening the team was resting up and refueling.
Tomorrow (5/19), if the weather holds, Team 3 will try to move up the mountain to Camp 2 (11,200ft/ 3,413m). We are looking forward to hearing from them soon!
