MAY 30 TEAM AT 7800′ CAMP 1

It sounds like the team enjoyed the beautiful flight from Talkeetna to Base Camp, located on the SE fork of the Kahiltna glacier. Once they arrived at Base Camp, the team ate, rested, and reviewed glacier travel skills. At approximately 9PM the team set out for Camp 1 at 7800′. The team made the decision to move during the cool evening hours because (believe it or not) the lower glacier can be quite stinking hot, and it’s much more pleasant to move during the cooler evening hours. The plan is to cache a load of equipment and supplies below Camp 2, tomorrow.
