May 30th West Buttress Team — Plan to move to High Camp

Kakiko calls in from camp 14,200′. Team is in bed and plans to move on up to High Camp at 17,200′ tomorrow morning on June 11th. This day involves another climb of the steep 800ft section of the fixed lines to reach the 16,000′ ridge that connects to High Camp. It is an incredibly aesthetic day of climbing as you weave in and out of granite rock on a narrow snow covered ridge. When they arrive at High Camp they will begin melting water to stay hydrated and creating a comfy home for the next few nights. Let’s hope the nice weather sticks around!
