Denali Expedition: Walter & Team Enjoy Rest Day and Sunshine at 14,200 ft

Friday, May 24, 2019, 3:49 PM PT Last night was warm (for 14,200' on Denali) and we woke to clear, calm skies. It looks like it would be a good day to move up high, but there is a strong weather front forecast for this weekend and we weren't quite ready to make a dash uphill to try to take advantage of this short weather window. Instead, we're taking another rest day and enjoying the sun and warm temps. We took a rope team up the fixed lines again today to get some exercise and stretch the legs, anticipating another few rest days in our near future. The team is doing well and we're in position to strike when our weather window appears. RMI Guide Mike Walter

Hi Pieter,

I have been quietly following your progress and the memories have been flooding back. The photos look incredible.  So very jealous and wish I was sharing it with you.

Fantastic effort getting the cache all the way to 17k in a one-er!  Wow, that’s a big day!

I hope the storm abates and the mountain opens the route higher for you…all that new ground to explore.

Stay safe Pieter…looking forward to seeing you and hearing all about it later in the year. Paul
