Denali Team 2: Day 13

The team acclimatized by climbing the fixed lines to nearly 17,000 feet today. Everyone felt strong today and we are looking forward to a weather window to move supplies to 17k feet. Stay tuned. (Richard says he loves Anna, George, and Freddie and that he is doing well.)

Sending over blue skies and best weather conditions from Berlin base to El Jefe and his team. We continued to praise St. Herman for happy trails and a successful summit. Flippi wants to say she looks forward to see the belly bear soon again and sending over hearts in every possible color to her Daddy. Rock on, brave mountain climbers!

All the best wishes to the Team for the next days, especially to Jeff, from Berlin Germany. I often think of you. Keep strong and enjoy the cold, here it it far to hot. Best regards from Birgit and Joachim
