Report From Crofton Climber, Camp 3

Karen Huseonica reports that she spoke to Art yesterday (5/30/08) at 4 p.m. EST via SAT phone, when the team went back down to Camp 3 at 12.900’ to bring up the “cache” (food & fuel).  It was cold when they returned so they made some warm burritos for dinner!

Planned Route for the Denali Ice AgersTraveling with snowshoes or crampons and roped together in groups of three climbers and one guide, they move the cache either by backpack and/or each towing a sled laden with supplies, which can be exhausting work!  Today they will  practice on the fixed lines above Camp 3. 

The team remains strong and in good spirits as they approach the more difficult terrain of Denali.  Tomorrow (6/1/08), they plan to move the “cache” up to 16,000’. 

Today’s weather in the mountain at their camp is zero to 5 below and tonight a chance of snow with temperatures at 5-10 below zero!  

This report includes excerpts from a 5/31/08 email from Karen Huseonica.
