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

May 23, 2014 - 10:19pm PT

We took today to acclimate and let our legs recover from a couple of good days and heavy packs. A late wake up once the sun hit the tents led into breakfast, then major architectural planning and construction of a new kitchen/dining area. Our new digs are 10 feet below the snow surface, giving us ample headroom. After an afternoon siesta, we rigged and practiced for the fixed lines, that we hope to ascend for the first time tomorrow.

The plan is to try to get our high cache of gear in tomorrow, and hopefully the weather will cooperate. We’ll check back in tomorrow, but send us wishes for fair weather.

RMI Guides Pete, Robby, Josh and Team
