Mt. McKinley Expedition: Hailes & Team Descending

We have been busy on the mountain.  With our summit attempt thwarted because of weather and the next projected weather window this Sunday the team has decided to head home to our families. 

Last night we slept at 14,000 feet and after a leisurely start to the day we have descended to about 9,500 ft. We will sleep here for a few hours tonight, awake around 4 a.m. so that we can take advantage of the frozen snow bridges,  and push on to the Kahiltna air strip. Unless we get stuck on the glacier because of bad weather this will be our last message from the mountain. We will talk to you all very soon.
