Denali Expedition: Van Deventer & Team Cache Gear at 14,000’ Camp

Tuesday, May 29, 2018 - 11:38 PM PT It was another pretty perfect morning on Denali, so we made hay. We started off a bit earlier with a smoked salmon and bagel breakfast, then loaded up most of our food and fuel, strapped on crampons for the first time, and started up Motorcycle Hill. The was a slight breeze to keep things cool, and a few moments of windy corner were cold enough to elicit brain freeze, but everything went incredibly smoothly. So smoothly that we decided to keep going all the way to Mike Walter and team's Camp at 14. They were nice enough to let us stash our load in their camp and keep an eye on it. We spent an hour visiting with friends and enjoying the new scene before we had back for our own Camp at 11. With our stuff up high, we're ready to move up at the next opportunity!

Congratulations to Magnus and the team on your march up the mountain! Packs only get lighter and most importantly, no more sleds from here on!

Hi Pete and Jess. You guys are the best! Reading these posts has me looking back fondly on those amazing days in May a few years ago.

PS, no poetry in the posts this time??
