Mt. McKinley: Jones & Team Rest at 14,200’ Camp

Today was a pretty chill day for team No Troubles here at 14,200’. We took the concept of a rest day very seriously, and slept in until the sun hit the tents late this morning. Breakfast was a delicious combination of retort eggs/bacon/sausage/gravy meals and freshly fried hash browns with cheese. The hot coffee was the perfect complement to our leisurely meal, and we waddled out of the posh sufficiently stuffed for the morning.

After a couple of hours of relaxation, we took some time to refresh our skills with the ascenders for the fixed lines, as well as practice for the running belays we’ll encounter up on the West Buttress. The afternoon’s weather turned a little more arctic, and we crawled into our tents after dinner to escape the frigid temps (-5F) and the blowing snow.

For now, we’re hoping for a break tomorrow morning so we can get our cache up onto the buttress. But as we all know, the weather has the ultimate say up here, so we’ll make a game time decision in the morning. Thinking warm thoughts from 14 camp, ta ta for now!
