Hi Seven Summits! Take the information from Denali. Yesterday, June 16th, our team has made a depot in the assault camp at 5200. Today we had a day of rest. Tomorrow the plan was a way up. But the outing  is delayed due to bad weather. Due to the poor prognosis. We will wait for the weather, as is often in high-altitude mountaineering.

 

The state of health of group members is good, as well as mood.

Bye! Sergey Larin.
