May 6 Denali Team Update

Don Lashley, a member of Mountain Trip’s May 6 Denali West Buttress Expedition called in from Camp 3 with an update on the team’s progress.

Yesterday the team made the trek back down to 13,400 ft. to retrieve a cache of supplies that they left lower on the mountain. They stayed the night last night at Camp 3 at 14,000 ft., and hope to stash more supplies up high today in preparation for their ascent to High Camp. He said the weather appeared to be moving in on them a bit, and that they may have to stay at Camp 3 for the day if another storm hits. Don said that they’re all feeling healthy and strong and looking forward to, hopefully, soon standing on the top of North America.

The team is making great progress, and we wish them the best of luck as they endeavor towards their goal. To check out the weather at 14,000 ft. on Denali, click here. To listen to Don’s report, click below:
