Denali Expedition: Walter & Team Descend Back to 14K Camp
Saturday, June 29, 2019 - 4:46 PM PT
After a good night’s sleep at high camp we woke up with the sun, had breakfast, and packed up camp. We descended the West Buttress and the fixed ropes on the Headwall and made it back to the 14k Camp by noon to beat the heat of the day.
We’ve decided to spend the night here and rest. Our plan is to spend tomorrow here also and wait until colder weather at night to travel back to the airstrip at Kahiltna Basecamp. With any luck we will be flying back to Talkeetna on Monday. We’ll keep you posted with our downhill progress. But for now we’re enjoying some well-deserved rest in preparation for a long descent.
