May 25 Team Caches at 16,400′

It was an exciting day for the Team to carry a load of equipment and supplies up the Headwall and the fixed lines to a cache site at 16,400′. Above 14 Camp the terrain steepens and the world broadens as climbers ascend up and out of the Genet basin and on to the flank of Denali. It’s steep, but fun climbing!

It was a calm, beautiful day, which makes for good climbing conditions and the climbers could enjoy the fantastic views from the ridge.

I believe this is William with today’s report:
