June 18 Team – Back in Anchorage

Lead guide Jesse Wright called in to let friends and family of the June 18 team know that they are back in Anchorage safe after wrapping up their Denali expedition. This team made the tough call of turning back from their summit attempt and hanging at High Camp 17,200 ft (5242 m) until the weather allowed them to descend back to base camp 7,200 ft (2194 m). After climbing through the night the team made it back to base camp in good spirits and were able to catch a Talkeetna Air Taxi back to where this whole journey began! Now they are debriefing, unpacking gear, and heading to their final celebratory dinner. It’s been a particularly challenging season on Denali and we are proud of the massive effort this crew gave regardless! Congratulations everyone and we will see you next year!
