Denali - West Buttress Expedition

McKinley Expedition: Walter and Team Move to 11,200’

May 10, 10:50 pm PT
Well, the weather continues to treat us well up here on the Kahiltna Glacier. We moved from Camp 2 to Camp 3 (11,200’) in beautiful, sunny weather; a light breeze kept us from over heating as we climbed up towards Kahiltna Pass. Once at camp we spent a few hours digging in and establishing a comfortable living situation. A well-earned dinner of quesadillas with fresh vegetables filled our stomachs before we crawled into our sleeping bags for the evening.
The weather forecast remains good, and tomorrow we will go down to 9500’ to make a “back carry” and retrieve the extra equipment we left there in order to make our loads more manageable for the journey to camp 3. We’ll be in touch again tomorrow.
Cheers,
RMI Guide Mike Walter

Climb Strong!  We are all behind you from Tampa.  I am reading the blog to the girls for a bed time story so please through some princess stories in there.

Love,

Dad (Bob Strode),

Coming home from dinner to a mother’s day message from Camp 3 on Denali made my night.  And may have almost made me cry, but we’ll blame pregnancy hormones for that.

Hope the weather stays so fabulous!  Keep on staying strong!  We all are sending good vibes and love from Ohio!

Love,
Mandy

Keep on keepin’ on… and keep that calm weather flowing!  We’ve had rain, hail, graupel, snow, and some serious thunder.  May in CO!  Who did you bribe to cut your fresh veggies this year?  Love you!  K2
