Our third team of the season is headed up to fly into Denali later this afternoon. Our May 8th Team met in Anchorage yesterday and finalized their preparations for their attempt on the highest peak in North America.
The team spent much of yesterday running errands in Anchorage, picking up last minute items and eating their last meals in “civilization,” before they embark for two or more weeks on the glaciers of Alaska. We ran the team north to Talkeetna, AK this morning, where they have all attended a compulsory orientation by the National Park Service. They are currently preparing to fly to the Southeast Fork of the Kahiltna Glacier, the site of Denali’s Base Camp.
