Crofton Climber – Update from 11,200′

Art Huseonica at Camp 2By Karen Huseionica, 5/25/08

Today, the team is still at Camp 2 with about 60 other climbers.  This is due to the bad weather…lots of snow and high winds.  

I talked to Art yesterday via satellite phone and he mentioned that Camp 2 is actually at 11,200’ and I had said in an earlier dispatch that it was at 9,500’.  If the weather clears today they plan to make a carry of supplies to 13,500’ below Camp 3 then return to Camp 2 to spend another night before moving to Camp 3 at 14.200’.  

Weather is always a factor in mountain climbing and Denali is certainly no exception -everyone needs to be patient and prepared.  

Art’s keeping up with completing his high altitude medical study daily questionnaire and recording his oxygen saturation level and heart rate.

Thanks, Karen, for keeping Crofton “in the loop” –
