June 6 Denali West Buttress Team – At High Camp 17k

The June 6 Team called in after a strong move up to High Camp at 17k. The team put in the trail up the headwall and the 16k Ridge at a swift 6 hour 50 minute pace ahead of many other teams that moved up. This is often considered one of the three hardest days of the expedition so nice work Callie, Blake, and Sean! The weather was ideal for a big move, cloudy and windless.

The team is now settling in, and awaiting a weather window!

Here’s Lead Guide, Jason:
