Having flown up to 7,200 feet onto the glacier by bush plane, you're now on a crevasse field on the southeast fork of the Kahiltna Glacier, 15.5 miles from Denali's summit. Camp is an international scene, buzzing with activity; many climbers are camped here sorting their gear for the upper mountain and others are waiting to fly out, having already made their attempts on the mountain.
