Mt. McKinley: Nugent & Team Cached Around Windy Corner

June 18, 2014 - 9:00 pm PT

We went around Windy Corner! We dug a hole (or chipped one out of extremely hard snow)! We buried some stuff (food, fuel, overboots, etc.)! And then we came back down to our camp at 11k’. All in all, we had a great day; the team is moving well and getting more and more psyched as we make our way up the mountain. The weather is gradually improving and we enjoyed blue skies and beautiful views of the Messner Couloir and the Orient Express on the upper mountain from the cache site. We filled up with an early dinner tonight and are racked out in anticipation of a big day tomorrow on our move to 14k’ camp.

Check in again tomorrow…

Mista Freed - hope the climb is going well.  I am climbing too - the ramp in my tank to eat pieces of sausage.  Give ‘em hell!

Love,

Swamp leeches. Everybody, check for swamp leeches, and pull them off… Nobody else got hit? I’m the only one? What’s the deal?
