Mt. McKinley: Hahn & Team Holding Steady

July 9, 2014 - 10:34 pm PT

It wasn’t such a bad day to start.  There was plenty of blue sky overhead at 6 AM and a little wind to contend with up high, but the day had potential to be just right for moving to 17,000 ft.  The team was feeling good and ready.  But we held off, talked some on the radio to friends at 17K (teams up there were staying put, not going for the top) and we watched the weather deteriorate.  The winds increased, a cloud cap formed on the mountain and the rest of the sky began to cloud up.  Before it clogged up completely, we roped up and took a short walk to “The Edge of the World” to look down on the Northeast Fork of the Kahiltna Glacier.  We belayed each other out onto the overhanging prow of rock for hero shots.  Then we headed back to camp and hunkered down in the tents for an afternoon of light snow and heavy cloud.  We’ll hope for better weather tomorrow.

Best Regards,
RMI Guide Dave Hahn
