Lead guide Rob (Durny) Durnell called in to let us know that the team carried gear around Windy Corner today. Windy Corner is a prominent rib of rock that drops down from over 15,000′ on the West Buttress and creates a challenging zone for climbers to pass on occasion. It sounds like today it was moderately so, with enough wind to make things interesting.
This feature, when living up to its moniker, can be a real show-stopper, as it can be impassable at high wind levels. Below are some images of the area the team climbed through today, including some of Windy Corner getting a bit blustery, probably like it was for our crew.
Here’s Durny![audio:http://mountaintripdenali2011.files.wordpress.com/2011/06/audio-post-2011-06-07-04-22-25.mp3|titles=Audio Post]
