Lonnie Dupre retreats to basecamp

For the better part of January, mountaineering aficionados kept an eye on the progress of Minnesota climber Lonnie Dupre who tried to summit Mount McKinley solo and set out to do so on January 7. But Mother Nature in form of 100 mph winds forced Dupre’s retreat and he decided today  to retreat to basecamp. Diana Haecker spoke with Dupre and has this report.
