Mt.McKinley: Beren and team fly onto Kahiltna Glacier

Elevation: 7,300'

It doesn’t always happen like this up here, but when you can fly out of Talkeetna at 9 am, just like you planned, it is a real sweet start to a trip. We landed on a warm glacier and spent the day settling into our new pace on the mountain. Building camp, rigging sleds, reviewing some techniques and most importantly checking out the views. It is stunning here and perfect weather for starting this adventure. If it holds we will wake up and head towards 7,800’ camp at the base of Ski Hill tomorrow, testing our new knowledge and taking our first literal steps.

Til then,
RMI Guides Jake Beren, Elias de Andres Martos, Thomas Greene and the gang.

Greetings from Talkeetna AK! 

Our team made it in last night/early this morning with all gear accounted for and we enjoyed a good night’s rest in Talkeetna. This morning it was business as usual, big breakfasts at the Roadhouse, a NPS orientation and a lot of sorting gear in the K2 hangar. Now we are checking tents, stoves and group gear before a big feast tonight. With any luck we will fly out tomorrow morning.

Til then,

It’s a beautiful day here at Camp Muir!  The winds have died down and we’re out practicing our rope work.  We’ve been above the clouds all morning an the views of Mt. Adams, Hood and St. Helens are fantastic.  Hopefully the weather continues to hold out for the rest of our trip.
