Denali - West Buttress Expedition

Mt. McKinley: Haugen & Team Move Into 14K Camp

June 20, 2014 - 8:29 pm PT

We woke up to snowing and blowing again this morning. We pushed our wake up/ departure time back a couple of hours and the weather cleared up nicely for us. Although leaving early is a bit colder, it keeps us off the glacier when it heats up and it gets us into camp early. We arrived at 14,200’ camp around 11:45 this morning and got the pick of the litter for already dug out camps. Since many of the other teams that were stacked up because of the weather headed up to 17k today, camps with big snow walls were in abundance. With a little bit of prep we got a great camp set up. We just finished some tortellini with salmon…roughing it. Thanks RMI, the food has been great on this trip!
