Mt. McKinley: Nugent & Team Waiting at 17,000’

Hey, everybody it’s Billy. 

I’m calling from 17,000’ where we are enjoying our third rest day or you could call them weather days.  We have been sitting around in the clouds, it has been snowy and windy.  We are hoping that this high pressure that is supposed to build this weekend over the mountain actually happens and we’ll get a chance to climb.  Right now the team is hanging tight, chilling in their tent, every now and then getting out and working on the snow walls, trying to maintain sanity and waiting for this weather to lift so we can take a crack at the top.  I’ll give you guys a call again tomorrow, let you know if anything new develops. 

Take care,
