Unfortunately the satellite phone connection was weak and cut out frequently, however, we were able to get the bulk of the message.
Denali Team 1: May 3 - 23, 2009
May 9, 2009
Lead Guide, Paul Ivaska, from Team 1 reports the following:
"Hi everyone! This is Paul with a West Buttress dispatch for Team 1. Today we went and carried a cache up to 13,500'. It's been quite windy (surprise, surprise), but everyone is doing very well. Tomorrow we'll continue up the mountain and establish camp at 14,000'.
That's it from this end. We'll call you when we get to 14 camp.
Remember to check our dispatches webpage for trip updates called in during the week!
