May 10th Denali West Buttress Team — At Camp 14,200′ & preparing to cache on the ridge

Patrick calls in from Camp 14,200 feet during a rest day due to poor weather. The team plans to climb the fixed lines on May 21 and cache up on the 16,000 ft ridge. This is a physically demanding day on steep terrain and important for allowing the body to acclimatize. After descending back to Camp 3 for the night, they will be poised to make a move for high camp and the summit when weather allows! Stay tuned!
