Mountain Trip lead guide Dan Starr called in an update on the May 25 Denali West Buttress team at 7,800′ Camp One. The team has already cached up near Kahiltna Pass, moved from Base Camp to Camp One, from 7,200′ to 7,800′.
Great, clear, sunny weather and high pressure has returned to the Alaska Range!
The team was enjoying burgers and fries on the glacier at the time of the call. Their next call will likely come in from 11,200′, Camp Three.
