Mt. McKinley: Walter & Team Making Great Progress

We had a great day yesterday, and moved our camp up to 11,200’. The weather was perfect for climbing, and we made swift progress up the Kahiltna Glacier towards Kahiltna Pass. We arrived in camp and spent a few hours establishing our camp, as we will be staying here for a few nights. With all of our gear moved in to the 11,200’ camp, we are in a great position, and we will spend the day resting and acclimating. We are planning to carry a cache of supplies up to Windy Corner (13,600’) tomorrow, so we’re looking forward to a lazy day today. The weather looks great the next few days, and our team is feeling strong. We’re right on schedule as we start staging on to the upper mountain.

We’ll be in touch again soon.

Looks like that serac disappeared.  I don’t see it in the photo.  Last year we estimated that it was 3 to 4 stories high.
