Mt. McKinley: Nugent and Team Rest at 14,000’

June 23, 2014 - 5:21 pm PT

After a long, tough day yesterday putting in our cache at 17,000’, High Camp on Mt. McKinley, we decided last night that today would be another rest day. The team is spending the day relaxing in the tents, and catching up on nutrition and hydration after returning to camp at 14,000’ last night depleted. Yesterday’s exercise combined with today’s rest should make us acclimatize well and make us exceptionally strong on our summit push. It’s also good mentally to know what a long day is like and to know that we are strong enough to push through.

With our cache up at high camp in and the gang well rested after today we’re in a good spot to make our move up and take a crack at the summit. Fingers crossed for a good spell of weather in the near future…

Hi Michael and Bruce. All is well here. Following your progress on the blog site. I hope you have great weather on your summit day. Bruce, your garden has been eaten by some groundhog. The weeds are thriving though. You’re not missing anything here so enjoy the climb.

Bruce and Michael, best of luck tomorrow, when you get to the top be on the lookout for penguins I understand they are rare that far north, but I have it from good authority that a group is known to nest at the top, out of harms way.
