Denali Expedition: Walter & Team Check in After Summit Day

Monday, May 27, 2024 - 9:30 am PT

Yesterday, we got the weather window we needed and on day 20 of this expedition, we stood on the summit of Denali.

What a day it was! We dawned all our gear (every layer! Brrr!) and were one of the first teams on the route. We climbed the Autobahn and took our first break in the sun. Up through Zebra rocks and onward we went. The clouds were below us and the views were beyond beautiful. A little breeze picked up as we crossed the Football Field and looking up at the summit ridge, we thought it might be too windy.  But by the time we made it to the top of Pig Hill, at the start of the summit ridge, the winds had died down and we carried on.

Quick photos and celebrations and “I can’t wait to tell my wife! my family! my friends!” sounded among our team. We know we wouldn’t be here without all the support of so many of you at home and we can’t wait to share more stories when we get back.

We’ll begin our descent today - after coffee and hot drinks, we’ll head down to 14,000' Camp, pack up all our gear and try to descend to 11,000' Camp tonight. With hopes to walk to the airstrip tomorrow!

With big full hearts,

RMI Guides Jess, Mike, Michael and the Denali #1 climbing team
