Denali - West Buttress Expedition

Mt. McKinley: Haugen’s Team Caches Supplies and Returns to Camp

Saturday, June 15th, 2013
After another early start, we made our way up to 10,000 feet and cached some of the food, fuel, and gear that we will not need until later. We started walking uphill around 4 a.m. this morning because even though we are camping and traveling on ice and snow, it can be quite hot with the sun beating down and reflecting upon us. We returned to camp just after 11 a.m. Katie and Uchal made some delicious breakfast burritos before we all turned in for our afternoon naps. Don’t judge, we worked hard!

The plan for tomorrow is to pack up camp early and head towards our next spot at around 9,600 feet. The mountain is pretty quiet since there are not many teams flying on the mountain right now.

Everyone is happy and healthy. Yvonne, Peter wanted me to let you know he is especially happy and healthy!

P.S. Congratulations to Tyler Jones and team for their summit!

Enjoyed meeting you’all in Talkeetna.  I am happy to hear you all are safe and sound.  We had a “standard” at the Roadhouse and a couple of Ice Ax Axes at the West Rib in your honor this afternoon.  Heading home tomorrow.  Good luck on the mountain, and I hope you all summit.
