June 12 team at 11,000 ft/Camp 2

Caitlin called in this afternoon from Camp 2 after picking up their gear from the cache at 9,800ft and bringing it all up to C2.  They got up and enjoyed a big breakfast this morning before heading down for a relatively easy day of hauling some gear up the mountain.  They spent about 25 minutes walking down to their cache, and about 1.5 hours carrying it back up to camp.  Two hours of work qualifies as a rest day on Denali.   They’ll spend the rest of the afternoon relaxing and going over some cramponing skills and techniques that they’ll be using as they climb into some steeper terrain tomorrow.
