June 9 West Buttress Team — Moving above Camp 2

Skip calls in from Camp 2 at 11,200′! He communicates that the expedition is going very well and that their team is A+. Today was spent firstly retrieving their cache 1,000 feet below camp and then practicing skills for their transition to crampons and ice axes for the climbing above them. Weather has been clear and warm, and the team plans to head up and around Windy Corner tomorrow to secure their cache below camp 14,200′. Stay tuned!
