May 17th West Buttress Denali Expedition – Camping at 9600′

Lead Guide Matt Park with the May 17th West Buttress Denali Expedition called in from 9600′ where they are spending the night at the intermediate camp between Camp 1 and Camp 2. Since this small team only has 3 members, and since each team member is a large strong individual, they have been able to “single carry” from Basecamp, moving all of their food and equipment with them each day. Small teams have the luxury of traveling lighter than a full expedition team, which means they can often “single carry” instead of the “cache and carry” method of ascent. Strong work team!
