Denali Expedition: Gately & Team Move to 14K Camp
Tuesday, May 21, 2019 8:43 pm PT
The winds from the previous day had subsided overnight an we woke up to mostly clear skies. You could see the south winds hammering the pipe West Buttress from camp. By the time we made it through breakfast, the winds dropped and we were in camp. With warmer temps forecasted and only light winds in camp we opted to try for the move. Long story short, it was windy. The kind of wind that your walking straight into for hours. The team did well taking care of hands, feet and faces. We finally found a break from the torrent at 13,600ft. A long hard day brought us to our new home here at 14,000ft. With camp finally set up, we’re all looking forward to a hot drink and a big dinner. Tomorrow we’ll try and back carry to 13.6k to pick up our cached gear then enjoy the afternoon off to rest and recover. That’s all for now, life is good!
