Denali Expedition Making Summit Attempt

Posted Oct 04 2009 11:11pm

Denali Expedition Team 1 left high camp at 17,200 at 12 noon Alaska time (4pm Eastern time) to make a summit attempt.  In his satellite phone message, guide Paul Ivaska said:


 "We're here in the sun at 17,200 feet ready to make a bid for the summit.  We'll leave in just a few minutes.  We are worried that some poor weather may be coming in over the next few days, so this might be our best shot. Wish us luck!"


NOTE:
