Friends, family, loved ones, Stuart and Nick here from Alp 6. Just calling in from our camp on Denali, everything is going well.
First of all, I’ve got a team name, we’ll see how long this one lasts, but from now one we will be known as Alp 6, The Justified and Ancients of Mu Mu. Today we worked our way up the Kahiltna Glacier, up towards Kahiltna Pass, and moved steadily, efficiently, conservatively up there. Put in a cache right about 9,700.
Caching is a tried and tested way of both acclimating and getting these bigger loads up the mountain for future use. Everybody did really well, the weather was conducive to travel, we had some clouds coming in later on in the day, but everything’s fine here.
Tomorrow the plan is to move up, either up to the cache site itself at 9,7 or if everybody is doing well, we’re going to go on to the 11,200 camp at the base of Motorcycle Hill.
That’s it for the time being and everybody sends their love. No news is good news if we get up to the 11,200 foot camp, sometimes satellite coverages are a little bit spotty up there, so if you don’t hear from us, everything’s fine, and we’ll try our best to get a cybercast out tomorrow, but as I say sometimes it’s less than successful up there. Thanks for tuning in folks and have a good evening, bye for now.
