McKinley: Day Eight - Carry to Windy Corner

Elevation: 11,200'

Today we carried half of our gear to the top of Windy Corner. True to it’s name, it was definitely windy. It was great to see the upper part of the mountain though and everyone did great on the carry. It’s definitely a different feeling as one moves up from the camp at 11,200 feet. Below there you feel as if you’re walking amongst mountains; above you feel like you’re really on Denali.

Conditions are really working out in our favor. The snow is great for walking and other than some wind up high the weather is very good.
