Tonight we will sleep well after three big days on the lower Kahiltna. We arrived to 11,000’ camp in the early warmth of a new day and made camp easily. A strong performance by the team gives us great confidence in our abilities the higher we move and with a full day of rest tomorrow, we should only grow stronger. 

The rest day won’t be entirely lounging about. We are going to review some tricks of the trade for motion on the upper mountain and ready loads for our carry towards our 14,000’ Camp.

So with a light snow falling onto our tents and the sound of other teams passing through camp, we say goodnight to our friends and family.
