June 15 Team – Rapid Ascent Trip Reaches 14K

Mountain Trip assistant guide, Kaylee Walden, called in for the June 15 team to report that their rapid ascent expedition has reached Camp 3 14,200 ft (4328 m) in just 5 days! A standard West Buttress itinerary has teams moving to “14 Camp” on the eighth day of their climb. Way to go, team! Tap the recording link below to hear Kaylee and climber Aton’s full update.

This crew will take a rest day tomorrow to reset and evaluate the weather that will determine their ability to move higher up on the route. In the meantime, the climbers will enjoy some well-earned naps, snacks, and delicious dinners in the cook tent. Stay tuned for their next update!
