Our group of climbers on McKinley led by Maxim Bogatyreva went to the camp of 3300 meters, it is also called "Camp Eleven" - as its height of 11000 feet. From here to the base camp and the airfield is  just "throw". The descent from the assault camp was  very difficult. As predicted, the weather broke completely, blowing a strong wind, so that the descent required to spend two additional nights. And one  was in a cave, which they themselves had dug. Now all this is behind. Climbers discussed how to spend the remaining days in Alaska and where to go next time. There is hope that tomorrow the group could not only descend to base camp, but will fly to Talkeetna.
