McKinley: Walter & Team Arrive at Basecamp

May 28, 2014 - 10:18am PT
Good morning from Base Camp!

We are listening to the snow fall while we sit in our tents, and although it seems bright and cheery from inside the orange nylon walls, this weather system has settled in and the South East Fork is thick with clouds.
We made quick work of the walk down from 14 yesterday,  stopping in at 11 Camp to dig up our cache and say hello to Brent, Leah, Nick, and their team. 

It’s much warmer down here, but consequently the snow is wet, heavy, and saturating, so we are all enjoying more time sitting “indoors” of sorts. 
Hopefully we get a break in the storm soon and K2 Aviation can get us back to Talkeetna!

RMI Guide Mike Walter & Team.

Seems like the Weather Gods are against y’all. We all wish for improvement. It’s a tough break.
Hey Lowerys come to Texas instead, we can offer you lots of rain.

Hey Stephen and team,
I congratulate you on a good effort. The willingness to undertake such a climb is very impressive. I am sure the experience was awesome. I wish the weather would have cooperated for you all. See you soon.
