Mt. McKinley: Van Deventer & Team Take a Weather Day

May 19, 2014 5:34 pm
The winds started to blow last night, and the temps dropped. The winds weren’t steady, but periods of calm were punctuated by gusts that slapped and rattled the tents. All morning we watched huge plumes of snow stream off the West Buttress, indicating steadier strong winds up high. Needless to say, it wasn’t a day to head around Windy Corner. We spent the morning moving and fortifying our walls, as the wind has conveniently switched directions by 180 degrees. A long siesta in the afternoon should have everyone well rested and ready to go for a carry tomorrow. We’re hoping hard for the weather to improve, to continue our progress, but the day of acclimatization can only help us at this point. Until then we are well dug in and will tuck in for a cozy night here at 11,000’. We’ll be in touch tomorrow!

Hasta mañana,

RMI Guides Pete, Robby, and Josh
