Mt. McKinley Expedition: Knoff & Upper West Rib Team at Basecamp

This is Adam calling from Kahiltna Basecamp.  We’re back and everyone is safe and sound, but our adventure isn’t over yet.  Weather permitting we will fly off today, but at this point of the trip we defer to the expertise of the Alaskan bush pilot.  The weather here is cloudy, with fog banks creeping in and out of base camp.  The pilots must have perfect visibility in order to safely land here, so all we can do is sit and wait.  It’s funny how much the weather dictates all movement on Mt McKinley; airplanes and climbers both!  Yesterday was my 36th birthday and what a great place to celebrate life!  Though everyone is looking forward to reuniting with family and friends, our climb of the Upper West Rib and reaching the summit of Mt McKinley is something we’ll always remember with pride. 

If the planes get in, this will be our final dispatch.  Otherwise, I’ll keep you posted on how we’re entertaining ourselves and dreaming of things we all take for granted in civilization!
