Mt. McKinley: Knoff & Team Carry to Windy Corner

Today we set out to cache our upper mountain supplies above Windy Corner.  As we finished breakfast and packed gear the wind blew snow around camp. Layered up and ready for the weather, we set out anticipating the gales that would greet us at the corner. Constant wind and snow tried to impede us but the crew dealt with the adverse weather like it was a summer stroll. As we pulled up to the fabled Windy Corner the weather was nicer than what we’d walked through to get there. We buried our gear there and pushed back through the nasty weather to 11 camp. Everyone did great and spirits are high.

Tomorrow we rest!

Ahh - a day of leisure in the rarified air.  Well deserved after yesterday and a chance for the team to recharge.
Chris - continued best on the adventure and trust you remembered every last lyric on the Thriller album.

Great to get the posts. Feels almost like being there except it is 100 degrees down here.  The team seems to be working like a well oiled machine.  Have a great climb.
