Zahid Denali Team is at Base Camp!

Mountain Trip – Update (May 1st)

Lead guide Eli Potter called from Denali Base Camp at 7,200′ (2200 m) on the Southeast Fork of the Kahiltna Glacier.  The team had planned to fly yesterday, the 30th of April, but the weather in the sleepy little town of Talkeetna was such that the team had to spend a night awaiting clear skies.  They flew on the morning of the 1st and spent much of the day reviewing skills that they will need to employ as they make their way up the next 13,000′ (3962 m) to reach the top of North America.
