Mt. McKinley: Okita and Team move to Camp 1

May 23, 2014 - 11:11pm PT

We awoke to wonderfully beautiful skies and not a hint of wind. What a nice reprieve to yesterday’s gauntlet with the persistent cold breeze that hit us head on all day. It was with this nice weather that we started our climb to our next camp. We knew that our loads would be heavy, but Ski Hill always manages to humble even the most fit of climbers. But try as it might to torture us with it’s deceptively constant grade, the team managed well and arrived at 9500’ with energy left over to build camp and get settled.

Our dinner of soup and burritos will hopefully sustain us for our next push: 11,200’ camp. Thankfully, today was the last of the huge loads we’ll be carrying as we plan on caching food, fuel and some personal gear here. We’ll pick this cache up the following day and bring it up to our camp at 11,200’. It’ll be nice to get to 11,200’ where we’ll finally be settled at the same camp for a number of days.

That’s the news from the Kahiltna Glacier these days.
Cheers,

RMI Guides Brent, Leah, Nick & Team
