Alp 2 ended an active rest day at 14 Camp with delicious burgers after backcarrying a cache of food and fuel


Friends, family, loved ones, Stuart here from Alp 2/International Cowboy Peeps from 14,200 Camp on Denali. Calling in to give you a heads up on what we did today and progressed.

We had an active rest day today. We went down to around 13,600 feet to pick up all our cache of food and fuel and got established at Camp. Had a burger meal this evening courtesy of Lyra which went over very well. We’re planning tomorrow to go cache in at the top of the Fixed Lines, so we can begin the climb from there.

Everybody sends their love, is doing well. The weather’s kind of in and out, not too bad today. And hopefully we can get some more progress tomorrow and get that cache in at the top of the Fixed Lines.

Bye for now. Thanks for tuning in.
