Denali Expedition: Van Deventer & Team Make the Move to High Camp

Sunday, May 29, 2022 - 10:27 pm PT

Unlike two days ago, when we woke up there wasn't a hint of wind in sight. We had word from Mike Walter's team that the weather at 17,000' was perfect to, so we launched out of 14,000' Camp in high spirits. It was one of the most pleasant days I can remember on the West Buttress. Temps were comfortable, no wind, and the views unparalleled. It's also some of the most fun climbing. We were at camp by early afternoon, set up tents, fired an early dinner, and congratulated Mike's team as they came back from the summit. Things look really good for us tomorrow, so fingers crossed, we'll make our push in the morning.

More amazing news!  And to hear you are able to enjoy the unparalleled beauty that few of us have ever seen in person.  Prayers for continued healthy bodies and weather and a mountain that says, “OK my friends, come on up and experience my magnificence.  Happy Memorial Day.  You stand on the shoulders of so many who have climbed mountains of war, poverty, injustice, and they are with you.  Mom
