Hi, this Ian from AAI Denali Team 3. It is Sunday, June 3rd and we are at High Camp (17,300ft). This morning dawned pretty clear but quickly turned into some very cold wind. At this elevation, even a slight breeze can be dangerous and we want to minimize the chance of cold injuries to our team of climbers and guides. Today we opted for a rest day and will try for the summit tomorrow. Everyone is resting, eating, and hydrating in preparation for tomorrows exertions. Hope all is well in the outside world.
