June 5 Denali Team at 14,200′


John and Greg of the June 5 Team at 14-Camp.

Lead Guide Ben Adkison called in with an update on the June 5 team’s progress up the West Buttress Route. They’ve made speedy progress to Camp 3 at 14,200′, and were fortunate enough (once again) to not experience any wind around the infamous Windy Corner. The team cached at 13,500′ a couple of days ago, and will head down to retrieve their extra supplies before heading to High Camp.

Ben said that the team was about to tuck into a hearty meal of pasta and meatballs before heading to bed for the night. He said they will send more photos when they can.

Here’s Ben with the update:
