Relaxing on another beautiful day in the Alaska Range, Team 7/Travis and the Mules continue to monitor the winds higher up with hope to move up soon

What’s happening everybody? It’s Seth here from Alp 7/Travis and the Mules.

Another beautiful day in the Alaska Range, except for above 16,000 feet. Still quite windy up there, and we took another weather/rest day here at 14,000 feet, which was really nice. Shirts off for a little bit, walked around, participated in some medical studies I believe and just had a nice relaxing day, reading, and hanging out.

The plan is to monitor the winds tomorrow and hopefully move up to High Camp and yeah, hopefully in a few days have a chance to summit Denali. Everyone is still stoked and looking forward to moving up to High Camp, we’ll talk to you later, goodbye.
