May 10 Denali Team – Backcarry to 9,800′

Mountain Trip guide Jordan Cargill called in an update on the May 10 West Buttress team.

The team woke up to 2-4″ of light fluffy low density snow, the team enjoyed a “leisurely” start later in the morning to back-carry to 9,800′.

They headed back up to Camp Two at 11,200′ to enjoy an afternoon in the sun and practice crampon and ice axe technique for when they move higher on the mountain.

The team is all in good spirits and moving well! Tomorrow, they are looking at a good forecast and if all goes as planned, they will cache around Windy Corner at around 13,000′ on the route.

Here’s Jordan!
