Holding at camp 1

Lead guide Mike Burmeister called after eating a hot meal yesterday evening, saying that high winds kept them tucked away in camp 1 instead of carrying a load up the Kahiltna glacier as planned.  High enough winds to keep an expedition in camp are rare at the lower elevations on Denali but it is what it is, and it is rarely a good idea to push into a cold, 30 mph headwind as the chance that a cold injury would occur is relatively high.  Mike said that all was well and they would continue on as soon as conditions permit.
