Denali Expedition: Walter & Team Take a Rest Day to Prepare for the Upper Mountain
Saturday, June 22, 2019 2:34 PM PT
We’re taking a planned rest day today to better acclimate and get strong for our forays on the upper mountain. The day began clear and we enjoyed a leisurely brunch as the sun warmed our cook tent. Now, in the afternoon, clouds have risen and there are a few snow flakes falling. Everyone has retreated to their tents for some rest, reading, and relaxation. We will review and practice the technical skills needed to ascend the fixed ropes, which run from ~15,200’ - 16,000’. We plan to head up there tomorrow to take a cache of supplies up high before returning to our comfortable 14k Camp. We’ll let you know how it goes.
