Vasyl "Bill" Radzevych
Team 5 guide Andy Stephen checked in on June 12th. The team had a successful day retrieving their cache at 13,200ft after enjoying a delicious breakfast of eggs and bacon. Camp was filled with swirling clouds and light fluffy snow They practiced fixed lines in the evening in preparation for moving farther up the mountain. They had a calorie rich lunch of Cheesy bread and an equally rich dinner of Shandy Mac Supreme. The plan for tomorrow is to put up a cache after the fixed lines at 16,000ft. Tomorrow is forecasted to be a beautiful day in the Alaska Range!
