Our May 29th West Buttress Expedition is on the glacier and will move to their first of four or five camps this evening. Lead guide Rob Durnell (Durny) called in the first of many podcasts that the team will post over the course of their 2-3 week climb of Denali.
The team is comprised of climbers from around the world, who have a common love of the mountains. They all arrived in Anchorage, Alaska for a team meeting and equipment check on the 29th and drove up to the small, sleepy town of Talkeetna, AK the following day.
Let’s meet the team:
Rob Durnell (lead guide)
Bill Dwyer (guide)
Yoshiko Miazaki (guide)
Here is Durny, calling in from Denali Base Camp![audio:http://mountaintripdenali2011.files.wordpress.com/2011/06/audio-post-2011-06-01-05-35-01.mp3|titles=Audio Post]
