Denali Expedition: Hahn & Team Enjoying Life at 11,000’ Camp

June 22, 2017 Rope teams came and went in the early morning today, and we stayed comfy in bed. The guides were desperate for coffee by 8:30, but the sun and full breakfast didn't show up until after 9. Our rest day consisted of long, leisurely meals in the dining tent separated by naps and reading sessions. It was a fine and sunny day at 11K. We sorted loads for the carry tomorrow and discussed climbing techniques. Each climber and guide prepared for the after-dinner poetry slam suggested by Anja. There were haikus and limericks, remembered verses and spontaneous rhymes... There was much laughter, some genuine applause and plenty of food for thought. And then there was the swirling cloud endless evening light show of Alaska. We're all excited to go climbing tomorrow. Best Regards RMI Guide Dave Hahn

So glad everyone is climbing strong and the weather is good.  How did Ken do with poetry?  I really can’t imagine it although he does like to talk…........Everyone is engaged in the blog from Arizona (116 degrees in Phoenix - HOO HOO) to Ohio.  We had 94 degrees with 70% humidity yesterday, then storms, now sunny and 75.  Improvement.  Continued blessings with the climbing way up there.  S.
