From Lead Guide Tad McCrea:

"Hello, sports fans. Happy to report that we finally made it to Camp 2 (11,200ft) today. we woke up to beautiful weather, much better weather than we were expecting and made our way up to camp. We got camp set up pretty efficiently and had a delicious Thanksgiving meal made by Calvin. Probably the best meal I've ever had in the Alaska Range. Our plan is to cache above Windy Corner (13,500ft) tomorrow and take advantage of this awesome weather. Very excited to be making a dispatch without talking about the snowfall or whiteout conditions."
