Mt. McKinley: Hahn & Team are Fourteeners

July 5, 2014 - 10:18 pm PT

We gladly used another perfect day to move up from 11,000 to 14,000 ft.  We managed to get as far as Windy Corner enjoying cool, morning conditions, but there is no way to sugarcoat the walking weather for the final ninety minutes into camp, the sun was intense, the air was still and the climbers were plain old hot.  That said, it was tough for anybody to complain too much at the combination of great weather and sweet route conditions.  We’ve kept our streak alive, nine days and half a mountain without having to step over an open crevasse.  All were interested and a touch apprehensive to see a raven hopping around our 13,500 ft cache as we approached.  He or she hadn’t had any luck in getting to this one though, and we took a moment to pack down the five foot deep snow covering the buried treasure -one more time.  We’ll retrieve that food and gear tomorrow if all goes well.

It was fun “catching up” to the other climbing teams at 14K, although we haven’t really as they are a day or two ahead of us now and are closer to moving up than we are.  Also great to follow the progress of the only other RMI team on the mountain via radio today as Adam Knoff and crew hit the jackpot for stable weather for a summit bid. 

Best Regards,
RMI Guide Dave Hahn

It is good to hear that you are having a nice sunny somewhat easy climb this time, I think you deserve it ! With all my respect and admiration.
