Big congratulations to the June 9 West Buttress team, who called in from the highest point in North America at 20,310′! Guide Aaron Diamond called from the top, joined by the entire team.
In a season of particularly tough weather and persistent storms, the team was fortunate to have great weather throughout their time on the upper mountain! From the summit, they will be descending, most likely on a night schedule, roughly 13,000 vertical feet back to Base Camp.
They are the fourth Mountain Trip team to reach the summit this year.
