Grand Marais climber Lonnie Dupre is in position to climb to the last camp before the summit of Alaska's Mount McKinley, the Duluth News Tribune reports.
The adventurer is making his third attempt to become the first person to climb alone in January to the 20,320-foot peak, the nation's highest.
Dupre reached 14,200 feet Tuesday, according to his One World Endeavors website. He hoped to move to high camp at 17,200 feet on Friday. A website posting at about midnight Thursday said, "As of right now forecast tomorrow is still 50/50 for traveling tomorrow, temperature with windchill is projected to be -45F. Lonnie is in good spirits and very excited for this stage of the climb."
