Mt. McKinley: Walter & Team Visit the Edge of the World

Hello again from 14,200’ on Denali! The weather was beautiful today, and we enjoyed it by taking a nice short hike out to the Edge of The World, a spectacular viewpoint near our camp. Then we reviewed and practiced fixed line travel with our ascenders. The rest of the day was spent lounging around, eating, napping, listening to music, and telling lies. We enjoyed a hearty dinner of black bean and chicken quesadillas, and now we’re all getting horizontal and settling in for the night. We are planning to carry some supplies up high tomorrow, in preparation for moving up to high camp later in the week for our summit bid. Everyone is doing quite well adjusting to the 14,200’ altitude of our camp, and I expect that we will all do well climbing higher tomorrow. Of course we have the luxury of returning to our comfortable camp at 14k tomorrow night for a good night’s sleep.

That’s all for now. We’ll be in touch again tomorrow night after our carry. Thanks for all the great comments on the blog. Keep them coming!

Hey everyone, hope your still killing it up there and telling some good jokes (hopefully not canadian related).  You guys are the best and I can’t wait to hear about the trip, I miss you all alot!

O, before I forget… lee here is an intro to the north-dakota jokes i’ve come across.. many more to come.

Q: Why did North Dakota raise the minimum drinking age to 25?
A: They wanted to keep alcohol out of the high schools!

Q: How do you know the toothbrush was invented in North Dakota?
A: If it was invented anywhere else, it would have been called a teethbrush.


Take tons of pictures for me on the summit!
Lots of love from Calgary,
Sasha

Great post and update!  Good job everyone….Guides included.  We would not get very far without our awesome mountain guides!  I am not paid to say that by the way.  :)
