Elevation: 7,800'

Hello, this is Adam Knoff here at 7,800’ on the Kahiltna Glacier with the West Rib Team.  We have moved up successfully to this camp and we are enjoying perfect weather.  We are going to take advantage of the weather and do a reconnaissance up the Northeast Fork of the Kahilta trying to establish a route up towards the West Rib.  We will then be moving back to camp here and have plans to carry to 9,500’ feet tomorrow and hopefully to 11,000’ the following day. 

Everyone is well and in good spirits. We saw Mike Walter and team coming down today and they are most thrilled to be heading out. We will update you tomorrow on the progress of a reconnaissance.
