Denali 2012 - Day 551

Hi guys really sorry for the silence, I broke my sat phone, snapped the antenna so was unable to contact from the mountain since Saturday. I am back in Talkeetna after an epic 4 days stuck at high camp (17 camp) unable to go up or down the mountain because of the bad weather. We eventually managed to get off the mountain and had a 24-hour down climb. Haven’t slept properly in 4 days.

It’s been horrific, some of the worst conditions I have endured, -35c, 70mph winds, 1 metre of snow in 24 hours which caused many avalanches.

Lots to update you on but will write more tomorrow. We are safe and well. Rich.
