McKinley: Day Twenty - Descending from High Camp

Elevation: 14,000'

Start the descent. Today we woke up to our old friend the wind. We realized that we were lucky with the weather the day before. The wind had picked up again and for a while we thought that we would be stuck at 17,000 for the day. At three o’clock we decided to make a break for it and packed up camp. Four hours later we pulled into 14,000’ Camp. It felt good to be lower on the mountain and after a solid dinner we all passed out.
