Denali Expedition: Haugen & Team Move to High Camp

Wednesday, June 27, 2018 - 8:39 pm PT

As mountaineers, we tend to take things one day at a time. It just so happens that this was one of the best climbing days ever.
After an early start, we climbed into the gorgeous sunshine that we have not had enough of this trip. The views of the glaciers below and the rocky ridge we were ascending made for stunning photos and memories we will not soon forget! We are pretty sure that Joe Horiskey scheduled a fly-by and wing wave from a F-35 fighter jet just as we topped out on the fixed line! Spectacular!!!
We are currently residing at 17k Camp in the late evening sunshine. This camp stays particularly sunny since there is not much above us to block the Alaskan midnight sun.
Our plan is to go to the summit tomorrow if the mountain allows us! I think the mountain may owe us a good weather summit day after all the Super Crew has been through so far. We will see if Denali agrees!?

What a Great Experience ! ! !  While I’m thrilled for you and your team, only another mountaineer can fully appreciate the struggles it’s taken for you to reach this height and fully understand what you’ve gone through…Sounds as if all of you are experienced climbers to be able to endure the weather you’ve gone through… The Summit is Your’s ! ! !  Be Safe and enjoy the Victory ! ! !

Love, Grams
