Lead guide Adam Smith called in a fairly understated update from the basin camp at 11,200′. I say understated, because what is left unsaid is that the team had a very, very tough day today. They packed up their camp at 7,800′ on the Kahiltna Glacier, donned snowshoes and broke trail through 2.4 feet of new snow for 3,400′ of elevation, over 4.5 miles of distance. This takes about five hours on a good day, but the team worked for eight hours to reach their goal for the day. Great job everyone!
Tomorrow is a significantly easier day, and the crew has earned a bit of rest. The weather has been very challenging, but Team Fubar is going strong!
