Denali Expedition: Walter & Team Fly on to Kahiltna Glacier, Establish First Camp

May 12, 2022  - 10:08 am PT

We had great weather yesterday and were able to fly in to Kahiltna Base Camp. We hit the ground running and took advantage of the weather to move to the base of Ski Hill. Light cloud cover kept temperatures perfect for climbing, and the Kahiltna Glacier was in remarkably good condition, which made for a pleasant day in the mountains. Our packs and sleds were heavy, but our team did great getting to camp and establishing camp. This morning the good weather is continuing, and we're getting ready to head off on a carry, establishing a cache up above Ski Hill. We'll be in touch and let you know how it goes.

Hey !!!!  Best of luck on the climb Mike!  This grey-bearded old man is headed to Rainier this week and will be ready for you to lead me to 20,310’ in May ‘23!  Be safe. Godspeed & Good Weather.  If you have any questions about the weather, ask your rock.
