Mt. McKinley: Van Deventer & Team Enjoy Rest Day

May 18, 2014 10:57 pm PT
Today was a glorious day for a rest day. The sun was shining, and the winds stayed calm though we could tell they were blowing elsewhere. We spent the day watching clouds pour over the ridge of Kahiltna dome, rolling down the backside and dissipating. It was beautiful to watch, and we were glad to be protected from the gusts. After a big breakfast of quesadillas, we sorted some food and gear for our carry past windy corner tomorrow. A quick review of cramponing and self arrest was as much activity as we needed this afternoon. We finished up the day with a big pasta meal and called an early night. We’ll be heading uphill tomorrow to put in our 13,500’ cache, which will set us up to move to 14,000’ camp! The rest day was a great opportunity to recover from the last few days, and we’ll be ready to go tomorrow! 

All for now,

RMI Guides Pete, Robby, and Josh
