Mt. McKinley: Walter & Team Reach 11’ Camp

Elevation: 11,200'

We’ve been enjoying good weather on the Kahiltna Glacier, and today was no different. After a trace of new snow overnight, we awoke to partly sunny skies. A breakfast of smoked salmon with bagels and cream cheese started off our day. After breakfast, we packed up camp and began the climb up towards Kahiltna Pass, en route to the 11k camp. We’re taking advantage of the good weather and making good progress so far. Tomorrow we’ll sleep in and take a rest day and prepare a cache of supplies to carry up around Windy Corner.
We’ll keep you posted on our next move. Until then, we’ll be resting…we’ve earned it.

Happy helmet-wearing! Glad the weather’s cooperating. I think 42 down is “summit”.  xoxo, K2
