June 4 Denali Team at BaseCamp!

Our June 4th Denali West Buttress team had a big day, meeting in Anchorage early this morning, loading up in the Mountain Trip van and trailer with their piles of gear, and driving to the small airstrip in Talkeetna, Alaska.  Once in Talkeetna, they had a final briefing with the climbing rangers from Denali National Park, and then loaded their mountain of gear and food onto ski planes for the flight to the Kahiltna Glacier basecamp. It’s a busy day, but it’s always nice to get on the mountain and start the climbing. They spent the afternoon and evening setting up camp and preparing loads for the early morning move to Camp 1 tomorrow.

Here’s lead guide Chris with the evening dispatch from basecamp:
