Hello! This is Ludmila Korobeshko, I report from the expedition on McKinley (Denali). Today, as planned, we went into the assault camp (High camp) at 5200. In general, the weather in the morning was quite cold, but the fixed ropes it was warmer. However, when we reached the ridge leading to the camp, we got a strong wind. We came to the camp almost in a snowstorm, there was nothing to be seen. We walked for a long time, about 9-10 hours. We went out in 10 a.m. and came probably after 7 p.m.
Now we put the camp, sitting in tents. Strong wind, no visibility. While we will watch the weather. It is difficult to have any plans to build. ... But in general everything is fine, all people went into the camp, all are healthy.
Best regards!

Good afternoon! Ludmila Korobeshko reports from the expedition to McKinley. We are now in Camp Ranger, at 4300 ... Today, June 30th, we have a day of rest. Yesterday we nade a depot, as planned in the assault camp. In fact, the day was quite heavy. We woke up early, but it was very cold at night, probably minus twenty. So we decided to wait for the sun, and only 11 a.m. we left the camp. Gone with fixed ropes and a little more along the ridge to Washburn’s Thumb. We returned happy but tired. So today the rest is very logical. In addition, the snow began at night ... We rest, look at weather forecasts and are already preparing for a summit bid. As soon as the window will appear, we will try to go upstairs to the assault camp, well, then, according the weather - on the ascent. All members feel good. Best regards!

Hello! There is Ludmila Korobeshko from the expedition to McKinley. Today we had a day of adventure, so to speak. And the Mount showed to some extent, a difficult character. It all started as usual on the plan, as we planned. At 4 am we went out and walked through Windy Corner, we went to the place of getting a depot. And as we walked quickly and vigorously, we decided to bring our depot even to the Camp Ranger. We dug in it and on the way back, near Windy Corner, a strong wind started ... and also started a blizzard, snow. And all this went on until the camp. With difficulty we have found in this blizzard our camp. We were happy that we managed to do. The weather turned bad and our plans may change, but we have time to spare. Bye!
