June 2 Team Final Dispatch

Ty calls in from Anchorage to report the team’s final dispatch. This team went through a lot on their way up and down The Great One, and we admire their resilience. The West Buttress, although it may be considered a somewhat “simple” route, is still full of its challenges both expected and unexpected (like COVID!). Not reaching the summit always challenges mountaineers to reevaluate their definition of “Success”, a question we all need to ask ourselves from time to time. They weathered a serious journey, and proved how tough they truly are. Denali will be there for them to visit again, and we hope they can continue to pursue their passion for mountains on other peaks, and valleys, as well.

Here’s Ty with his final call in:
