June 15 Team – Midway to Camp 2

Mountain Trip lead guide, Josh Jespersen, radioed in to let us all know that June 15 is continuing to do well as they make progress up the West Buttress route. They single-carried from Camp 1 7,800 ft (2377 m) to make camp around 10,000 ft (3048 m) midway to Camp 2 11,000 ft (3353 m). The team is enjoying what Josh calls the nicest day any guides or climbers have seen on the mountain this entire season! While this nice weather brought along some very hot and sweaty travel conditions on the climb this crew is proud to say they got it done!

Along with the guide staff, this team is composed of climbers Andres and Anton, a father-son team from Germany. Tap the recording link below to hear Anton’s update in German and tune in tomorrow to hear what happens next!
