Elevation: 20,320'

RMI Guide Adam Knoff called on June 10 at 5:50 pm (PST) to report the team was on the summit of Mt. McKinley!

They made a great push starting at 9:00 am this morning and were celebrating at the top. The weather was warm and beautiful and it was the best day ever for their team. They were going to head down to 17,000’ camp to spend the night. On Saturday they plan to head to 14,000’ camp and spend another night.

The whole crew made it to the top and were very excited that their second push paid off!

Congratulations to the team!
