June 9th West Buttress Denali Expedition – Back Carried below Camp 3

Assistant Guide Sean with the June 9th Team called in from 14,200′ to report that the team retrieved their cache near the Windy Corner and now has all of their food, gear, and people settling in to life a Camp 3!

Here’s Sean with some special shout-outs for his loved ones back home: Audio Recording

As Sean mentioned, now the team will practice some skills, including how to use their rope ascenders on the fixed lines, in preparation for voyaging up the Headwall in order to put in a cache on the 16,000′ Ridge between Camp 3 and High Camp.

Nice work team! 

Heading down with empty packs and sleds to retrieve a cache, aka the “Back Carry”.
