Summit! The June 20 team including climber Paul Kitchin, and guides Aaron Diamond and Nicole Lawton all stood on the 20,310 ft summit of Denali today. They are back in high camp this evening eating and recovering from a big day. They’ll enjoy one more evening up at high camp tonight, and then begin their descent to basecamp which will take just a couple of days.
Here’s Nicole calling in from high camp after returning from the summit:
