Guides:

Jeremy Devine
Steve Johnson

Climbers:

Alex Uddin
Adrian Bell
Nick Talbott
Rowena Lewthwaite

From Jeremy Devine at 11:12pm last night June 7th:

Hi, this is Jeremy Devine with AAI Denali Team 4. Today we awoke to some heavy snowfall overnight which stopped early in the morning. We had some cloudy skies but the weather was actually fairly warm so we decided to move to High Camp (17,200ft). It was a fairly slow day, as moving to Camp 4 is the most difficult move day of the expedition. Upon arriving at High Camp the weather started to clear and became quite beautiful. We hope to have a window to push for the summit tomorrow or the day after.
