Lead guide Kristin Arnold called in a final update for the June 11 team, who are back in Anchorage after their expedition up the West Buttress! They are likely enjoying being back in civilization, complete with warm showers, fresh produce, greenery and iced beverages.
The team descended from 14-camp all the way to Denali base camp at 7,200′, a leg-killing 7,000′ descent, where they were picked up by Talkeetna Air Taxi for a flight out of the Alaska Range.
We will post photos from the team as soon as we receive them. Nice work to the team!
