We decided that today would be a great day to do some more acclimatization at 14,000’ on Mt. McKinley. Instead of carrying our gear higher we decided to rest today and then retrieve our gear on our move to 17,000’ tomorrow. The team is feeling strong and we are feeling very positive about a good summit bid once we get into position at seventeen. Keep your fingers crossed for good weather for us for a few days!

I see from the other teams that the weather is really bad.  I hope you all are dug-in and holding out safe and warm.
