Denali - West Buttress Expedition

Mt. McKinley: Walter & Team Wait for Flying Weather at Basecamp

May 30, 2014 - 6:29 pm PT

Our team is still at Kahiltna Base Camp waiting for the weather to improve so that we can fly back to Talkeetna. This is day 23 of our trip and we’re all getting antsy in anticipation of a hot shower, food, and flush toilets.

We picked up another eight inches of snow over night, and the precipitation has continued pretty much all day. We’re hoping for a break in the weather in the next few days so that planes can get in to Base Camp.

That’s pretty much all the news from this end.

Steve and Team,

Sorry to hear about the continuing weather woes. Sounds like everyone will need to turn in any sharp objects pretty soon! However, when it comes to flying it’s always better to be safe than sorry.

Hope the weather gods start smiling on you soon.

Dad
