Possibly the best day in the Alaskan range, as Team 1/ Out and About plans for a summit attempt in the morning

Hey all ya’ll, it’s Out and About here at High Camp on Denali, it’s Friday, the 24th at 9:03pm.

And folks, it is possibly one of the best days I’ve ever seen high in the Alaskan Range. It was still warm outside, the sun is shining and you can see all of the Range, it is truly beautiful, not a speck of wind. We are very happy.

The weather forecast is stellar for the next few days. We’re going to head up for the summit tomorrow morning, somewhere between 9 and 10am and we expect a great day. So we’ll give you a ring from, hopefully, the roof of North America tomorrow evening.

That’s all for now.
