Mt. McKinley: Walter & Team on the Move

Hello from the Kahiltna Glacier. We had beautiful weather yesterday and were able to fly in to Base Camp. Thanks to K2 Aviation and our turbine Otter pilots Jeff and Randy for a great flight. The weather was warm and sunny at base camp, and we took advantage of it by lounging around! (we needed to wait for the air and snow temperatures to cool down for safe and efficient travel conditions).

By the time we left camp, at around 11pm, the conditions were perfect for walking, and stayed that way all the way to the base of Ski Hill at 7,800’ where we made our camp at 4 a.m. Now we’re enjoying bagel and cream cheese with smoked salmon for brunch. We’re planning to continue with our nocturnal ways and move to 9500’ tonight.

Ciao for now,
RMI Guide Mike Walter
