May 26 Team – “Lloydy” Calls From Camp 1

Lloyd Charton called in from Camp 1 at 7,800 feet on the broad Kahiltna Glacier.  The team pushed roughly five miles up the glacier and put in their first camp that is actually on the West Buttress route.  It is a spectacular place to camp, and the vastness of the surroundings tends to give climbers a keen sense of how small they are in the immense Alaska Range.
