June 23 Team – Stunning Weather At Last

Lead guide Harrison Lewis got on the radio after the June 23 team’s celebratory dinner for their first night at 14 Camp! 14 Camp or Camp 3 14,200 ft (4328 m) is midway up Denali and is the most well-equipped of all the camps on the West Buttress route. Everyone is in good spirits and looking forward to a bit of rest after climbing nearly 3,000 vertical feet from Camp 2 11,200 ft (3413 m). Conditions are often much better at this elevation and Harrison said the team arrived in absolutely stunning weather!

Everyone is in great spirits and is looking forward to the coming days when they will be busy retrieving gear from lower on the mountain while preparing to move up the Headwall to the 16,000 ft ridge. Check-in soon for their next update!
