Meet the Team! May 17th West Buttress Denali Expedition

We are excited to welcome Mountain Trip’s 6th Denali team of the season to the mountain: the May 17th West Buttress Denali Expedition! 

The team consists of:

The May 17th Team, on their way to Talkeetna.

FUN FACT: The average height of the May 17th Team is 6 feet, 5 inches!

That makes the May 17th Team our TALLEST team on the mountain so far this year. We’re sure those long legs will come in handy as they make their way up the mountain.

Lead Guide Matt Park called in with their first audio dispatch of the trip. Give it a listen at the link below!

Good luck team!
