Mt. McKinley: Jones & Team Can’t Get No Satisfaction!

June 16, 2014 11:05pm PT

Well, the Rolling Stones hit the nail on the head with this one. We’ve sort of adopted it as our theme song of the day, as the weather continued to thwart upward movement for our team. Temperatures and wind in camp were more conducive to resting inside than hanging around outside, and the team spent most of the day relaxing in our posh, eating pancakes and sharing stories with the other climbers who stayed in camp.

While the forecast isn’t the greatest we’ve seen, we’re still hoping for a window of high pressure for a summit attempt this week. We are getting close to a go/no go date, but spirits remain high and the stoke for the experience is strong. Keep sending the positive vibes and we’ll do our part if the mountain cooperates!! Cheers from a well-lived-in 14K camp,

RMI Guides TJ, Garrett, Bryan and the No Troubles Crew

D.G.  I know you want this weather to straighten up so you guys can get a chance at the summit.  Crossing my fingers that chance will come real soon. Have you all started numbering the stories yet? Love, Mom

Jen - Sorry to hear that the weather is uncooperative, but it will make it that much sweeter when you do get a chance to go higher. I’m sending my strongest clear calm weather vibes!

Hey gang, just thought I’d let you know that hot showers and cold beer are as lovely as you remember!

Jake, you’d have REALLY enjoyed the journey down…let’s just say you don’t need to lug that Reese Witherspoon poster any further up…

Hoping for a perfect weather window soon so you masochistic freaks of nature can show McKinley who’s boss!! She won’t know what hit her!

With tongue in cheek and tail between legs,
Will - The Token Canadian

P.S. No Troubles? More like Needs Therapy!!
