After five days near the top of North America’s tallest mountain, six Fort Worth firefighters and their guides are making their way back to base camp, WFAA/Channel 8 reported Saturday.

They reached their “high camp” on Alaska’s Mount McKinley last Sunday, but efforts to reach the 20,000-foot summit, also known as Denali, were stymied by heavy snow and high winds.
