Hey, this is Dave calling from Denali. We moved from 17,000’ to 11,000’ today. There was a lot of new snow down below and we were post holing through deep snow all the way down the West Buttress, down to 14,000’ and all the way to 11,000’ breaking trail. It all went really well. Today was a nice day, nice, calm and sunny.

Now we are camped at 11,000’. We hope to get up in a few hours and make our way to the airstrip and perhaps be there and ready to fly out tomorrow morning. So, I’ll give a call if that happens. Today is Monday so that would be Tuesday morning that we would be at the airstrip if all goes well on the lower glacier. Talk to you soon.
