Mt. McKinley: Walter & Team Rest at 14,200’ Camp

Posted by: Ben Liken, Mike Walter, Solveig Waterfall | May 24, 2013
Categories: *Expedition Dispatches *Mount McKinley
Elevation: 14,200'

Our team slept in this morning and got some much needed rest for our upcoming summit bid. Tomorrow we plan to wake early, pack up camp, and move to our high camp at 17,200’. The weather is perfect, and so is the forecast. We hope the meteorologists in Fairbanks are correct, as they are predicting good weather for the next few days. But, as always, we’re focusing on one day at a time. And if the weather is good tomorrow, that focus will be climbing efficiently from our current camp at 14,200’ up to high camp at 17,200’, and establishing ourselves up high for a summit bid. Stay tuned and wish us luck…
