AC Denali Post 8

We missed Anders' phone call yesterday, which came unexpectedly late in the day.  He did leave us a message and reported that they had another challenging day of climbing but they had made it up Ski Hill and were safely in Camp Two at 9,500 feet.  He said the weather was nice and the views were fantastic.  As we post this on Sunday morning they are undoubtedly on the move to Camp Three at 11,000 feet.

Anders said he was feeling very good and that has pulse oximeter had given him a 97% O2 saturation, which is excellent--aparently the two months he spent sleeping in a hypoxic tent is now paying dividends.  Here is a map of the route and their progress to date:
