Last evening Dupre called in from 11,200ft. Battling winds up to 50mph, yesterday he traveled from 10,200ft to 11,200ft. Tired from the long haul, he plans on retrieving the rest of his gear 600ft below today and spending a rest day at his current camp tomorrow. With a hearty meal of mac and cheese he hit the Montbell sack with plans of waking up early today to a little Prairie Home Companion.
