Team Out and About dug in and established themselves at Camp 4 after a long day of climbing

Hey all ya’ll, it’s Team Out and About/Alp 1 here. It is the 20th of May at 9:53pm, Monday. We are giving you all a shout from 14,200 feet here on Denali, Camp 4. Sorry we were not able to get a cybercast out last night, but we had some challenges and a late day. However, we are here at 14 and everybody is doing well.

We’re dug in; we’re established with our camp. And tomorrow the 21st, we’re going to cover some skills for the fixed lines and for the upper mountain and have about a half a rest day as well, hoping to acclimatize and get set for our push above 14 Camp.

Keep your fingers crossed for some good weather for us, we need it. That’s all for now, we’ll give you guys a call tomorrow, cheers.
