Mt. McKinley: Van Deventer & Team Move to 9,700’

Another beautiful and successful day. We woke this morning to sunny skies and a cool, fresh breeze blowing. We put away breakfast and coffee, and then packed camp. The first stretch up ski hill is a steady, consistent grind, and in many ways we were happy for the breeze. Several other teams were moving around us as well, so we were trading leads with a handful of them. One of the great parts of climbing McKinley is meeting other climbers from all over the world. The camaraderie of the mountains is pretty special.

Once we reached our camp, we spent several hours setting up tents and building some burly snow walls. We aren’t sure if the winds will ramp up as forecast, but we’ll be ready if they do. We are going to play tomorrow by ear, but for now everyone is settled into tents with full bellies.
