AAI lead guide Tad McCrea called in lat last night reporting that the team has successfully cached near Windy Corner (13,500ft) above Camp 2 (11,200ft). They got above the cloud layer and welcomed beautiufl view of Mount Hunter and the upper mountain of Denali. On the way back they clouds grew thicker and brought nearly 1 foot of snow on the camp. The team will look to move to Camp 3 (14,200ft) aka 14 Camp when the weather clears.
