Mt. McKinley: Jones & Team Make Carry Towards High Camp

This morning we were prepared for a day in camp as visibility was poor and the winds raged off the ridge of the West Buttress. We enjoyed a long and delicious breakfast of eggs, bacon and three cheeses on a bagel accompanied by fresh coffee. Our meandering discussion spanned many topics and ended with a break in the snow and wind.

Ten minuets later we sprung into action, prepping our packs for a carry up onto the West Buttress proper to 16,200’. We dropped our food, fuel and other supplies for our summit push. We are now set for a move up to high camp in a few days or whenever we get a break in the winds and unstable weather.

With an evening arrival back at 14k camp, we plan to recover and rest in hopes of going upward soon.

Keep it going, Larry!  Also, please take a picture of the icefall below 11k camp when you’re there.  Last year there was a wicked triangular shaped serac that was about the bust loose!
Rock it!

It sounds as though you are making super progress.  With Eric Frank as one of your guides, I am not at all surprised.  Best of fortune to the Jones team for a successful summit attempt and a good time on the mountain!

You make this running and up and down 3000 ft of mountain with supplies sound like a little walk.  How long does it take you to do that?  How much are you carrying?  What do you do with the supplies up there?  Don’t know anything about mountaineering, but am very curious.  thanks for the updates; I love them.  Go Logan and team!  elfe
