May 23 West Buttress Team – Cached on 16-Ridge

Lead Mountain Trip guide Yoshiko Miyazaki called in an update on the May 23 team, who successfully cached up on the 16-Ridge above the fixed lines up the steep headwall above 14,200′ camp. With their cache in place, the team just has to wait for a good weather window to move up to High Camp at 17,200′–hopefully tomorrow (June 7)!

Another Mountain Trip team from the ’19 season at the “Edge of the World.”

The team then also took a visit to the “Edge of the World,” a beautiful overlook at the edge of camp with stunning views out over the entire Alaska Range.

Here’s Yoshi:
