Mt. McKinley: Van Deventer & Team Check in from 14,000’

May 22, 2014 - 6:51 pm PT
We’ve been in and out of the clouds all day here at our 14,000’ camp on Mt. McKinley. Despite the clouds and requisite light snow, the solar is pumping, and it feels like we’re in a greenhouse. We woke on the later side, giving the sun time to make it to us, and ate another big breakfast of hash browns, eggs, and bacon. Anything to get calories in. After a bit of camp tending, we set out for a quick jaunt to our cache at 13,500’. We retrieved all of our food and personal gear, then turned and headed back for camp. The afternoon was for relaxing, drying sleeping bags and clothes, wet wipe bathes, and general self care and rest. More than likely we’ll be resting tomorrow and training for the fixed lines.

Thanks for reading,

RMI Guides Pete, Robby, and Josh
