Around 11:35am pacific time, Jason and Brent set out for their summit bid!
Per the inReach communications, multiple other teams had been getting ready to leave around the same time. They expect the trip to take around 12 hours, but it could be longer depending on what weather conditions they encounter. Keep your eyes open for updates!
They made it to Denali Pass and stopped for snacks. Jay reported “beautiful weather”. This is around the point they turned back last time.
They made it to “Pig Hill”. There is one more big push to the summit. Jay reported it is very cold.
SUMMIT ACHIEVED!!!!!! WOOOO!!!! GO JASON AND BRENT!!!!!! HAVE A SAFE JOURNEY BACK DOWN TO HIGH CAMP!!!!!
I will update once they are safely back at camp.
They made it back to camp. Jason stated they were feeling “utterly exhausted”, happy and accomplished, and ready to get off the cold mountain. They will probably sleep in today and then likely begin their descent.
