Denali Expedition: King & Team Stack Walls at 14,000’ Camp

Friday, June 15, 2018 - 5:50 PM PT Today was a prime lesson in the Three Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf. We got some comments and stares yesterday while building 7 foot walls around our Camp with such blue skies and warm temps. This morning we got even more remarks from people as we continued to build. By 4 pm the winds had picked up to 30+ mph gusts and the Pigs who had built their homes from straw were in full scramble mode while our Pigs rested in their tents surrounded by snow bricks. We practiced some skills for climbing the fixed lines, they gets us higher on the West Buttress and will hang out while Denali does what Denali wants to. Currently it's demanding that we, "respect it's authority". RMI Guide Mike King

Hey Scott!  Totally echo what Julie said (except for the “babe” part).  Good luck with the weather—pretty much rounds out everything you can possibly come across on the mountain, doesn’t it?  Hang in there bud.  Hope you brought a good book.
