AAI guide Jim Mediatore called from Kahiltna Base Camp early this morning. After being delayed 1 day the team is now on the mountain and ready to begin moving up.

Jeremy Devine prepared a delicious meal of veggie burgers and salad and quickly reviewed some glacier skills.

The weather is pleasant and they have great views of Mount Foraker (17,400ft) and Mount Hunter (14,573ft).

Later today they will begin making their way up the Kahiltna Glacier towards Camp 1 (7,800ft).
