Mario Roncador of Italy, one of the climbers on the May 6 Denali West Buttress Expedition, called to check in yesterday evening, May 15. Mario said that the team had a beautiful, successful climb up from Camp 2 at 11,000 ft. to Camp 3 at 14,000 ft. They arrived to a lot of fresh snowfall at 14,000 ft. after the recent storms, and had to put in some work to dig out their camp.
You can hear the team laughing in the background, and they seem to be in high spirits. Click below to listen to Mario:
