SUMMIT Via the West Rib for the Honey Badgers!

By: Mountain Trip

Lead guide Marty Schmidt called in a post at 3 am after Team Honey Badgers returned from the summit of Denali!  They saw a relatively narrow window of opportunity and headed up.  It sounds like the weather was fairly burly at times, and it took them a long time to make the round trip to the summit and back down to their high camp.

Everyone is safe and sound back at camp and they will give us more of an update tomorrow.
