Denali Expedition: Walter & Team Build Snow Walls to Protect Camp

Sunday, May 23, 2021 - 6:01 pm PT

The weather has not gotten the message yet that we’re trying to move up to the 14,00' Camp. Winds calmed yesterday afternoon, but picked up again early this morning. We were poised to break camp when they ramped up to the strongest we’ve seen this trip, strong enough to break guy lines on our cook tent. Texting via satellite with friends at 14k, we knew conditions were even harsher up there.

Instead of moving up today we built some snow walls to protect our camp here at 11k. The weather is improving this evening, and again we’re hopeful that we can push camp up higher tomorrow.

We’ll let you know...

Might be fun to build an igloo in your spare time.  Hope you get moving soon.

As it turns out, there is actually a patron saint of good weather, Saint Medardus!  I never heard of him before. He’ll be hearing from me until you’re home!
