The window of opportunity for today has closed, so a second weather day is burned before we even get to the mountain.
Lodging Situation Problematic
Talkeetna is filling up with climbing teams that like us cannot get to the mountain. The Fireweed Inn where we have been staying is booked with another team, as is every other traditional option. The Talkeetna Air Taxi service has a “Bunkhouse” which essentially some plywood decking on 2×4’s which they had been using as storage. They cleared out the supplies and that is where we will make our home tonight.
Several more days of bad weather is forecasted, but perhaps a hole will open. So the waiting game continues.
