Denali: Acclimatizing and Weather Watching

11,200ft Camp; Clouds pouring over Denali Pass

The HMC Encampment at 11,200 ft. Motorcycle Hill behind.

Stunning View down the Kahiltna Glacier from Windy Corner

Evening light on Sultana and Beguya as we arrive at 14,200 ft

The Eastern Flow weather pattern continues; another windy, unsettled day at 14,200 ft

Acclimatization run to 16,200 ft; Peter, Lauren and Dave reach the top of the fixed lines in cold, breezy conditions

Edge of the World Rock; Jim contemplates the West Rib, and yet another discouraging weather forecast

Peter glad to be up here, not down in the North East Fork

Ranger Chris Erickson makes his rounds as a storm rolls in

HMC tents dug in (and dug out) at 14,200 ft

Expedition Scrabble; all words played must be useable in a sentence relevant to expedition life....
