May 10th Denali West Buttress team — Back carry to camp 14,200′

The team calls in after retrieving their cache at Windy Corner. After a restful morning and pick-up of supplies down at Windy Corner, the afternoon was spent with skills training to prepare for ascending the fixed lines. The fixed lines live roughly 1,400 feet above camp 14,200′ and entail 600 feet of steep snow climbing to gain the steep narrow ridge that takes you to high camp. Everyone is doing well and excited to set their cache up on the ridge at 16,000′ tomorrow if the weather allows. Stay tuned!
