Denali Expedition: Haugen & Team Return to High Camp After Summit

Friday, June 29, 2018 - 1:09 AM PT RMI Super Crew got to the summit of Denali around 6 pm today. The weather was amazing all day and we all walked to the top in just base layers, which you would imagine is rare when climbing big mountains in Alaska. Mountaineers don't cry... everybody knows that. However, all of our eyes were awfully sweaty when we reached the top and saw the spectacular scenery below! We had a very safe climb back to high camp and a are currently working on getting into our sleeping bags for some well earned sleep. RMI Guide Mike Haugen & Super Crew

Congratulations to Cody and the entire Super Crew! Well done! Denali is a great teacher that the best rewards in life are earned through patience, perseverance, and teamwork. A special thanks to Mike Haugen for his excellent leadership of your team. It’s harder it looks! :-) Safe travels down and back to “civilization.”

Craig and Crew, for what it’s worth, my advice is that in the midst of pushing for this amazing goal, you take lots of time to notice where you are and remember these words from John Muir- Oh, these vast, calm, measureless days, inciting at once to work and rest! Days in whose light everything seems equally divine, opening a thousand windows to show us God. Nevermore, however weary, should one faint by the way who gains the blessings of one mountain day, whatever his fate, long life, short life, stormy or calm, he is rich forever.

Way to go Josh Levy and crew!
Now you can get back down safely, and enjoy some well earned time in a quaint drinking village with a small climbing problem.
