May 23rd West Buttress Team — At Camp 1

Art calls in with the May 23rd West Buttress Team from Camp 1. They had an early exit from Basecamp at 4am during the colder hours of the day to cross the Kahiltna Glacier to Camp 1. The Kahiltna Glacier is longest glacier in the Alaska Range and requires a couple days of hiking to access Denali. Everyone is healthy, happy and excited to begin their climb! Stay tuned!
