Genet basin Camp3 (4389m – 14399ft)

18 June 2015 – have managed to reach Camp3, without any problems, with the first tent at approximate elevation 4389m  where they set Camp3 ( 4.389m – 14.399ft ) This part of the Mount McKinley ( Denali ) is named Genet basin, in honor of climber Ray Genet , pioneer of Denali .

The edge of the Genet Basin is known among climbers as “The Edge of the World” because from the edge of the basin, the terrain drops 1800m almost straight down to the NE Fork of the Kahiltna Glacier

Until now they had gorgeous weather . We hope they will have favorable weather in the feature too.

In the same day they were able to return to Camp2 , Motorcycle Hill area from where they will move tomorrow to rest at Camp3  ( in Genet Basin Camp3 ).

After that follows a period of adjustment depending on the weather and they will try High Camp – The Crows Nest at 5.242m altitude – 17.196ft .
