June 13th West Buttress Team — At Camp 2

Gavin calls in from Camp 2 at 11,200′ with an update. A mixed day of weather brought snow and wind during the morning hours with weather clearing in the afternoon. The team plans to take a rest day tomorrow followed by securing their cache of gear at 13,500′ around the infamous Windy Corner the next day. Leaving Camp 2 is when you trade in snowshoes for crampons and begin climbing upwards on steeper terrain towards the tallest point in North America. Stay tuned and let’s hope for clear calm weather!
