Denali Expedition: Hahn & Team Move to 11,000’ Camp

Sunday, June 24, 2018 - 9:45 PM PT

We busted out of camp at 9,500 ft by 7:10 AM.  There was still plenty of cloud out and about, but not so much in the direction we wanted to go.  Of course things were a little cooler at the lofty heights we were reaching, but not unpleasantly so.  We reached the corner at Kahiltna Pass in just over an hour’s time and left the mighty Kahiltna Glacier.  A couple of tough uphill pushes then brought us to 11,000.  Conditions were sunny, calm and nice as we built camp -we’re starting to get good at this stuff.  The afternoon was spent napping and prepping for tomorrow’s carry to 13,500.  In the late afternoon and evening we got a heavy and hot snow shower.  We dodged it eating burritos in the dining tent.  After dinner, things got fun and busy as RMI Guide Mike King’s victorious climbing team came down to share camp for an evening.  They’ll head downhill in the early morning and we’ll be looking upward. 
Best Regards
Dave Hahn
