Denali - West Buttress Expedition

Mt. McKinley: Nugent & Team Establish Camp at 14,200’

June 19, 2014 - 10:41 pm PT

We have arrived at 14,200’! The weather today was marginal with moderate winds, occasionally heavy snow, and sometimes even hot sunbreaks. A little bit of everything made for an interesting move. McKinley’s 14K camp is uncharacteristically empty; lots of snowed in abandoned camps to choose from but they were all pretty crummy. We ended up digging out some old platforms and quarrying new blocks to rebuild some delapidated walls to protect our tents from the wind. We did find a great pre-dug posh that must have been abandoned by Jake or Tyler’s crew as they moved up to 17K today. Thanks guys! Our team is racked out already after our big day and eating a hot meal. Tomorrow’s plans call for an easy back carry and hopefully some rest in the afternoon.

Talk soon…
