Despite a marginal forecast, we awoke to perfectly workable conditions. Packing up our cacheables, we busted moves up the hills Motorcycle and Squirrel to get to the Polo Fields. There it began to snow lightly but never got too bad and we were able to make it all the way to Mt. McKinley’s 14K Camp in great style.

At 14K, we ran into our friends on the other RMI teams and always great to see some friendly faces in such a wild zone. Tomorrow we plan to rest up and move as soon as the weather allows.

George - is this climb a reaction to dealing with the Green “C” that we took on our family camping trips - Hope all is well and that you are enjoying the LvH

Hey George! Eric, Jessica and I celebrated my birthday in a fine Brazilian restaurant in Seattle, and the only thing missing, was you! So happy you and your team are advancing and the weather helping! Keep up the good work and I hope your feet are ‘happy’. Miss you!

Nice work, Jorge! I know you’re good for 14,400 so no supplemental any time soon. We’re eating tapas and drinking sangria in Espana in your honor so here’s a salud to the next camp. Adios amigo,
