Mt. McKinley: Walter & Team Staying at 11K Camp Another Day

Well, we’re still at the 11,000’ camp below the West Buttress. The temperatures dropped and the winds picked up considerably today as a cold storm system is affecting Alaska.  Apparently, it’s snowing in Anchorage; that’s about 11,000’ lower altitude than our camp.  So yeah, it’s cold here.  But we’re all doing well.  Most of the day found us either in our sleeping bags in our tents, or in the cook tent, staying out of the wind and passing the time by reading, playing scrabble, and telling stories. We’re hoping the winds abate tomorrow and we are able to move camp up to 14,200’. We’ll keep you posted.
