Denali Expedition: Walter & Team Move into 14K Camp

We woke early to perfect weather this morning and decided we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to move camp up to 14,200’ in Genet Basin. The weather remained great for us all day, with some clouds building mid morning and a few scattered snow flurries, but no wind to speak of. Laden with heavy packs, we made slow and steady progress and after about six hours we arrived at camp. It’s been a few hours now and camp is up, the climbers are resting in their tents, and stoves are cranking melting snow for water bottles and heating water for dinner.
Tomorrow we will head back down to Windy Corner to retrieve our cache. That will be a short day and we’re happy for that. We’re also looking forward to our first complete rest day the following day (Monday). It’s time to lick our wounds, rest, and acclimate.

Hi Mike, I understand from my cousin, Pieter Swart’s wife, that Pieter is part of your team. Hallou Pieter, so bietjie Afrikaans spesiaal net vir jou, daar op die berg. Seker die 1e keer dat Denali Afrikaans hoor!!  I’m so glad that your team is steadily making progress. Holding thumbs you’ll reach the summit safely! Judging by your pictures, your scenery is NEARLY, not AS, beautiful as that of Antarctica. Ask Pieter to explain this one to you. Good luck further on.

Kelby and team, hope the weather gods keep smiling on you. Love hearing about your progress. Keep it going!

The weather is on your side Jim and team, this time around. Blisters, bruises on the torso and hips be danged… Look forward to reading that you have all safely summitted and are recovering with a brew in your hand. Inspired and proud of you.
