June 3rd West Buttress Team — At Camp 2 @ 11,200′

Lead guide Brian Muller calls in from Camp 2. The team is currently at Camp 2 positioned at 11,200′ and planning to set a cache around the Windy Corner at 13,500′. This is when you trade in snowshoes for crampons and begin climbing steeper terrain on the mountain. First with Motorcycle Hill right out of camp and then up Squirrel Hill. From here you can see Windy Corner in the distance and the goal is to climb up around this feature to set the cache. Let’s hope for more climbing weather so the team can continue moving on up. Stay tuned!
