Denali Expedition: King & Team Rest Day at 14,200’

Saturday, June 5, 2021 - 8:22 pm PT

We had another calm and cold night here at 14,200’. The need for a rest day allowed the team to get some skills refreshed on fixed line travel and running belays. Both of which will let us go up on the West Buttress tomorrow to cache some food and fuel for our summit attempt. The Team went out to the Edge of the World viewpoint for some pictures and views of the N.E. Fork of the Kahiltna Glacier. Warm tents and lots of sun have the team enjoying some time out of their boots and hopefully getting a nap in. We will see what the weather holds over the next few days. We might get 3-4 weather days starting Monday which would allow for some more acclimatizing before heading to high camp at 17,200’. So far everyone is healthy and happy to be in such a beautiful part of the Alaska Range.

The Edge of the World is an appropriate name for the view, I hope everyone on the team has a chance to take a photo like this for their memory book. Thanks for the daily updates. Be safe Michael and enjoy your time on the “Edge of the World.”

Wow, what a view!  Sounds like cold is your constant companion and that clear is your best wing man.  Good luck to Rob and team.
