Mt. McKinley: Beren & Team Move to 11,000’

Elevation: 11,200'

A big aloha from 11 Camp

We woke to our first clear morning of the trip, with brightly colored lenticular clouds stacked over Mount Forraker. It was cold and clear in our neck of the woods and we traveled well on our way to our cache at 10,000 feet. With slightly lighter loads we dispatched the final hill into camp and moved right in to camp. Now we rest during the heat of the day and recover after a great, but tough day.

Tomorrow, if the weather permits we will retrieve our cache and ready ourselves for life higher up.

Take care everyone,
