May 24 Denali West Buttress Team awaiting weather window to set Windy Corner Cache

Mountain Trip guide Jesse Yon called in an update for the May 24 team, who was wrapping up their second rest day at Camp Two, 11,200′.

The team spent the day catching up on sleep, replenishing calories and gambling their snacks as wind and snow prevented them from moving up the route to cache around the infamous and aptly named Windy Corner, around 13,400′. After they are able to cache, they can move camp up to Camp Three at 14,200′ on the route.

Here’s Jesse!

    Great to hear your voice, however,, I don’t approve of gambling snacks. With your poker face you risk starvation. Love, Mutt
