Hey everybody this is Billy here. I’m with Kel, Levi and the rest of the gang checking in from 17K Camp, high on Denali. We had a beautiful day today and it was actually pretty darn hot for our move up to high camp. We spent a good chunk of the afternoon cutting blocks and fortifying our spot. We’re hoping to take a crack at the summit tomorrow. The weather forecast looks perfect. We’ll call in tomorrow hopefully check in, from the summit perhaps, and then once again once we get back to camp safe and sound. That’s all for now, talk later.
