Sorry for the delay, but we’ve had five trips get out the door in the last few days. Our focus was on making sure each of the trips was as prepared as possible. We had dinner with the Rib team the other night and these guys will have a great time on the mountain together. Gusto Curtis and Jay Richards are both from California and will be joined by veteran Denali guide, Jared Vilhauer.
The team flew into the park yesterday, and made good time in getting to Camp 1. The plan is to move up the glacier, acclimatizing on the West Buttress route until 14,000 foot camp. From there, they will descend to the base of the Rib, and attempt their climb in Alpine style.
