McKinley: Day Thirteen - Holding at 14 Camp
The weather was OK today, but there were at least eight teams trying to move up the fixed lines toward the 17,000’ Camp. Because of this we decided to wait a day and carry our gear tomorrow. It turns out that this was a good idea as all of the teams arrived at the fixed lines
together and the resulting traffic jam was frustrating to the other groups that we talked to. I took part of our group out to “the edge of the world” today. This is the edge of the ridge that abuts the glacier that the 14,000’ camp sits upon. The view down to the Northeast Fork of the Kahiltna Glacier is mind boggling and we spent about an hour out there taking photos and admiring the scenery.
