Mt. McKinley: Upper West Rib Team Rest at 14,000’ Camp

June 9, 2014 - 10:15 pm

After two days of climbing, we took a rest day today at 14,200’ Camp on Mt. McKinley. We enjoyed a leisurely morning of coffee drinking and a breakfast of cream cheese and lox bagels as we relaxed and enjoyed some sun in Genet Basin. In the afternoon we took to the snow saws and built walls around our camp that would make Troy look like a toy castle. More relaxing followed as snow began to fall. We are hoping to make a carry up to the West Rib, around 16,200’, tomorrow but we’ll see what the weather allows. That’s all for now.

Thanks for following

John, is it too late to join you?  I’m really getting inspired although I think I would require a motel come night fall.  Snow camping and ice hotels aren’t nearly as much fun as people think.  Can’t wait for the pics, especially those of you working hard! Local news: GO KINGS GO!  One more win to go!  Keep having fun.  GO TEAM GO!  Tante

God Speed to you, John Stenderup and all your fellow climbers!We heard about your great adventure from your folks at the Arvin church’s 100th Anniversary. You and your friends are mightily in our prayers for safety and fulfillment on this climb. You are putting into practice the words from that great song:“Climb every mountain, ford every stream, follow every rainbow till you find your dream.  A dream that will need all the love you can give, for the rest of your life as long as you live.  Blessings to you all!  John and Robin
