Denali Expediton: Haugen & Team Moving Down the Mountain

Saturday June 30, 2018 12:54 AM PST We are headed home... Slowly. We woke up to pretty big winds and blowing snow at 17k camp this morning. Our desired early start turned into an afternoon departure when the weather finally gave in enough for us to descend. We had a great climb down to 14k camp where we crossed paths with Dave Hahn and his crew. It was great to see them and we hope they get the same kind of summit day that we got to experience! After picking up some cached gear and food from 14k, we made our way through some snowy weather to 11k camp. The Super Crew did a great job keeping it strong on this very long day! Even though the weather does not look to cooperate with us for a Basecamp dash tomorrow, we are in positioned to make it there when it is time to fly! I think I can speak for the entire Super Crew 6 when I say we are sick of snow! RMI Super Crew 6

I’m so awed by this accomplishment. I plan to share the blog with my English students in the fall when they read the novel, “Peak.” Godspeed for the journey down the mountain.

Glad to hear you made it down to 11K.  Prayers are still being said daily for your team for safe travels and homeward bound.  Stay warm!  See you soon Cody!!!!
Love you,

Super Crew 6,

“Teamwork ... is the ability to work together toward a common vision.  It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results.”  Andrew Carnegie

You are all far from “common”, yet you accomplished something amazing.  Memories last forever! 

Thanks M Haugen for all your hard work and knowledge to make it happen!  Celebrate in style together!

Lindsay and Matt…so excited for you…enjoy that snow, you’ll be exchanging your altitude sleep chamber for a “sleep in freezer” when you get back home…Hit Summer!

Congrats to all!
Ellen M
