Denali 2012 - Day 540

It’s been a tough 24 hours. Last night was rough, 70 mph gusts and heavy snow, virtually no sleep but tent held up well. Cold start yesterday at minus 15-20 and no visibility. Then the weather broke for us to carry a load to 4100m. Poor conditions and lots of people made it a tough day of safely passing slow teams and navigating down in a white out. We are both good and ready waiting for a window to move to camp14 at 4400m. Another team had a crevasse fall yesterday, no injuries.

It’s mostly been rubbish conditions, white out, flat light, snow, winds with odd breaks! Totally different to last year. Colder. I prefer these conditions, snow is good to settle upper mountain.
