Mt. McKinley: Walter & Team at 9,600’ Camp

Last night, after the snow firmed up enough for efficient travel, we packed up camp and moved up to our new camp at 9600’; this included tackling Ski Hill, our first big hill of the trip. Everyone did a great job hauling sleds and heavy packs up to camp. We slept in this morning (8 hours of sleep!) and had a relaxing brunch in our newly constructed cook tent. We are planning to lounge around a bit, rehydrating and resting, in preparation for our next move up to 11,200’. The weather is nice right now, with partly cloudy skies and a moderate wind out of the north. We’ll be in touch again soon, hopefully nestled into a cozy camp at 11,200’.

Cheers,
RMI Guide Mike Walter
