Monday, January 24, 2011

Lonnie Dupre has postponed attempts to summit Denali for now. Dupre is still at 17,200 feet for the sixth day in a snow trench he dug.

According to a post on Dupre’s blog, his expedition manager Tom Suprenant writes that he couldn’t come out of the trench due to extremely high winds and cold temperatures. Suprenant writes that Dupre’s strength and stamina is beginning to deteriorate. He’s hoping for a break in the weather to climb down to 14,200 feet and to regroup.

Dupre is attempting to become the first person to summit Mt. McKinley in January.

Tom Suprenant joined Loudon Wilson in the KTNA production studio to record the following update on Lonnie’s expedition.
