May 11 Denali – “Dad jokes” at 11,200′

Climber Sophie Chung called in an update on the May 11 Denali West Buttress team took a rest and weather day at 11,200′, now that they have their cache in above Windy Corner and will be ready to move to 14,200′ when the weather allows.

Other teams reported waking up to between 12 and 15 inches of snow at 11,200′-Camp. Camp Three is unfortunately in a position where it seems to get significantly more snow than other camps on the route.

Here’s Sophie with the play-by-play:
