Elevation: 9,500

Another day in the bank. We are still enjoying sunny days and warm, but pleasant, temperatures at our 9,500’ camp on Mt. McKinley. We carried a load of gear and food up to 11,200 feet which will help our acclimation process and get us set up for climbing higher on the mountain. However the crew is most excited that they are done with the heavy loads…for now.

We are back at 9,500’ resting and acclimatizing.  We will check in again soon.

Glad your load has lightened and the sun continues to shine!
