Mt. McKinley: Knoff & Upper West Rib Team Move to 11,000’

Hello, this is Adam Knoff and the Upper West Rib Climbing Team.  We are established comfortably here at 11,000’ on Mt. McKinley.  We moved up today from our camp at 10,200’ in very nice weather. 

The weather deteriorated a little bit this afternoon bringing some clouds and light snow.  We were able to climb above camp for a few hours and found a nice place to do some ice climbing and some training.  That got everybody excited and morale is good. 

Everyone is feeling strong and we expect to make a carry up to 14,000’ tomorrow.  Then we will see what the weather is like as the forecast calls for a low pressure system on Tuesday and Wednesday.  This puts a little uncertainty into our planning so we’ll play it by ear.

As our team gets to know each other we have discovered that the never snoring Mr. James Fitch does in fact snore. And that is one of the fun new discoveries of the trip so far.

We’ll keep you posted as our plans for the upcoming days develop.

James, glad to know you’ve finally gotten up there. It’s worth the wait. Courtney, nice job getting the heavy load hauling done. All spectacular country ahead. Be safe and have fun!

Congrats on your progress so far - please continue to keep us posted, thank you.  So glad to hear the whole team is doing well.  If Peter is James’ tentmate, I’m glad he brought earplugs!  If possible, please tell Peter all is well back home and that his friends and family are cheering him on.
