Mt. McKinley: Walter & Team Cozy at 14K Camp

Elevation: 14,200'

Hello again from 14,200’. It’s snowing right now, and it snowed all last night. There’s only about 6” of accumulation so far, bur more is expected today and tomorrow. The good news is that there isn’t any wind here at 14k, and we’re all comfortable and cozy in our camp. We’re still in a holding pattern, waiting for decent weather to move up to high camp and be in position for a summit bid when the current weather pushes out.

In the mean time, we’re getting plenty of rest here at camp. Everyone is patiently awaiting better weather, although we’re all a little antsy for some exercise and a chance to move higher. We’ll keep you posted…

Hope you don’t have too much snow removal to do from your camp and that the weather settles into perfect climbing weather very soon.  The kids say HI to their Daddy, Lee!
