Mt. McKinley: Knoff and Team Carry to 11,000’

These are the McKinley moments that tend to recharge the batteries and make the hard days tolerable.  Inside the tent, wrapped in a mountain of down, fed by the culinary expertise of Lindsay and Andy with views straight down the Kahiltna Glacier that knock your boots off.  The simplicity of this entire process creates an appreciation for simple rest not realized in other facets of ordinary life.  Get up, work yur’ arse off, get real tired and hungry, eat and go to bed.  No technology distractions, no depressing news feeds, simply us and the mountain. 
Having just completed day three, we are all pleased with our current position.  We awoke this morning to chilly temps, blowing snow and low visibility.  Because of our lower elevation of 9,300 feet another move day seemed a bit much so we opted for a carry that landed a majority of our team’s unneeded gear at the 11,000 ft camp which we plan to move to tomorrow.  These first four or five days can be some of the climb’s hardest but everyone has handled it with grace and competence.  We anticipate another strong team performance tomorrow.  Big hugs go out to friends and family who are taking the time to follow along. 
Hasta mañana,
